Day and Night

Today, we learnt about night and day. We learnt that the Sun remains in the same position and does not move, but the Earth rotates around the Sun—did you know it takes 365 to orbit the Sun once? We looked at the way the Earth spins on its axis, and the way the Moon orbits the Earth. It was quite confusing at first, but with the help of a torch and a globe, we were able to understand the apparent movement of the Sun.

Our key words included:
