UNIT 7 " The Sun"

Unit 7 "The Sun"
In this unit we´re going to recognise the Sun as a star, the Earth as a planet that orbits the Sun as well as other basic characteristics of the Sun, the Earth and the moon.





THE SUN

The Sun is a star. The sun gives us heat and light. Planets go around the sun. The sun is made of gas.

THE EARTH

The Earth is a planet. We live on the Earth. There are eight planets in the solar system.


THE MOON

The moon is made of rock. The moon goes around the Earth. The Sun lights up the moon and the moon looks like if it is changing shape. The moon has craters. Astronouts went to the moon in 1969. Moon has different phases: New moon, crescent moon, quarter moon, full moon.






SUNRISE, MIDDAY, SUNSET

Early in the morning, you can see sunrise. At the end of the day you can see sunset. The Sun rises in the east and sets in the west. When the Sun is high in the sky It´s midday. When it´s dark and we cannot see the Sun, it´s night.

We can see the Sun in the daytime. It takes 24 hours/1 day for the Earth to turn around once.

LET´S REMEMBER.

We have 4 seasons in a year (Spring, summer, autumn and winter) because the Earth is tilted.
