    In our trimester one science unit, students will learn that:
    ●      Light is energy.

    ●      Light travels in a straight line until interrupted.

    ●      Day happens when a location on Earth is facing toward the sun; night happens when a location on Earth is facing away from the sun.

    ●      Sun appears to rise in the east and set in the west everyday due to the earth’s rotation

    ●      The four cardinal directions (east, west, north, south)

    ●      Shadows are the areas of darkness created when an object blocks light.

    ●      The shapes of shadows change over a day and depend on the position of the sun in the sky.

    ●      The sun’s location in the sky varies by season.

    ●      The moon, stars and other planets are always present, but more visible in the night sky

    ●      The earth rotates

    ●      Earth orbits the sun.

    ●      The moon orbits Earth.

    ●      The moon can appear in the sky during both night and day.

    ●      The moon changes its appearance, or phase in a regular 4- week pattern.
