Day and night sky

This online resource identifies the features of the day and night sky.

The resource is a Scootle interactive where students can identify the features of the day and night sky through seeing representations of them on the screen.

This activity could be used to lead a discussion (e.g. Why stars can only be seen at night, whereas the Moon can be seen in the day and the night).

Night and day

This online resource teaches students how night and day occurs.

The resource is a unit of work with a literacy focus, but sequences 1–6 deals with how night and day occurs.

The unit also provides a literature study of Dreaming stories and folktales from a variety of cultures, related to the theme of night and day.

Each sequence is designed to take one or two 45-minute lessons to complete, with additional time suggested needed for students to carry out their own research.
