Day and Night

These programs may only work from school!!

Light and Shadows . Look at how a tree makes a shadow during a sunny day. Notice that objects always casts shadows that face away from the Sun. Examine how the shape and position of a shadow is related to the time of day and position of the Sun. Explore the shadows cast by different objects such as a bike, an umbrella and a child. Position the Sun to cast shadows at different angles and sizes. Complete pictures by positioning an object, a shadow or the Sun. This learning object is a combination of two learning objects in the same series.


Sky Watch . Turn an animated model of the Earth to explore how rotation affects the view of objects in the sky. Use a camera on the Earth's surface to compare views of sunrise, sunset, the movement of the Moon and position of the stars. Compare views from space with views from the Earth. Answer a series of questions by experimenting with the model. For example, work out the time of day from given views. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.


Day Sky, Night Sky . Identify objects in the sky such as clouds, planets and stars. Look closely at movements in the sky during the day and at night. Explore facts about celestial objects such as meteors and Moon phases. Build your own sky scene.
