Here are some ideas we will be thinking about during our Science Unit Study.
We will become scientists and do a lot of questioning. Rooms 1, 1a, 2, 2a and 3 will be Thinking, Using language, Managing Themselves, Relating to Others and Participating and Contributing during this unit.
Everyone will be exploring ideas about The Sun, a Star – where it fits into our Solar System and how it effects our life on earth.
Some ideas we may talk about:
We see the Sun in the daytime.
The Sun gives out light and heat.
Life on Earth depends on the light and heat given out by the Sun.
Large space objects that emit their own light and heat are called stars.
The Sun is a star.
Other stars are much further away from us than the Sun.
The Sun is the star closest to the Earth.
If we were able to get closer to other stars, we would sense a greater amount of their heat and light.
