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


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


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.


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.


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

Unit 6 "water, land and air"


We can find water in three different forms: Liquid, solid and gas.
Water is a liquid, Ice is a solid and water vapour is a gas.

Water turn to gas when it is hot
Water turns to solid when it is very cold
Water turns to liquid at room temperature


The water cycle is a continuous process of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection.

When it is hot, water from the sea evaporates. (This is called "evaporation")
The water vapour condenses into tiny drops and forms clouds. (This is called "condensation")
When the clouds are cold, It rains or snows. (This is called"precipitation")
The rain or snow falls into the sea.( This is called "collection")

Water and Land

The earth is covered with water and land. There is more water than land on earth. 
The water can be saltwater or freshwater. The water in the seas and oceans is saltwater and the water in rivers, lakes and streams is freshwater.

The land on earth can be soil, sand or rock. Plants and animals live in soil.


Air is a mixture of gases. We cannot see air but it is all around us. People and animals breathe oxygen from the air. All living things need air to live.

Other vocabulary related to the unit: Waterfall, river, sea, lake, groundwater, stream, ocean.

* Let's compare animals!!:
  • A seahorse is smaller than a seal.
  • A dolphin is faster than a turtle.
  • Is an elephant bigger than a whale? No, it isn't. 

Comparative adjectives with -ier and more:

* When an adjective finishes with the letter -y, we take away the -y and add -ier.
   Example: pretty - prettier
  •  A whale is prettier than a crab.

* We use the word more before long adjectives:
   Example: dangerous - more dangerous
  •  A shark is more dangerous than a seahorse.
