By safely observing and recording the sun and moon at various times, I can describe their patterns of movement and changes over time. I can relate these to the length of a day, a month and a year.

SCN 1-06a

Benchmarks:

· Describes how the Earth spins around its axis in 24 hours resulting in day and night.

· Observes and records the different patterns of movement of the moon and explains why the moon appears to have different shapes and positions in the sky at different times in a lunar month.

· Demonstrates understanding of how the Earth takes one year to completely orbit the sun.

· Demonstrates understanding of how the tilt of the Earth on its axis as it circles the sun causes the pattern of the seasons and changes to the number of daylight hours over the course of a year.
