Make your own model to show how the Earth orbits the sun while the moon travels around the Earth. Print onto some card, and cut out the sun, moon and Earth and the two strips. Make holes where the black dots are and use paper fasteners to attach the short strip to the back of the moon and the long strip to the back of the sun. Attach both to the back of the Earth using a single paper fastener. Your model is now ready to use!
The aim of this cloze is to use the words in the box to fill in the blanks in the text below. It's a fun way to test how much the kids have learnt about seasons and the Earth's orbit. We've also asked the children to label the seasons on the diagram.
We've created a fun and challenging worksheet to help the kids learn about day and night. Can they shade part of the earth in darkness and say whether it's day or night on each picture?
