Sun, Moon, Planets – Study Guide
In our solar system
not in our solar
examples of indirect
examples of direct
shadows can give
you information
closest star to Earth
rises in the east, sets in the west
at its highest point in the sky at noon
appears to be moving from east to west, however, Earth is
moving, not the sun.
planets and other bodies orbit around the sun
Earth rotates on its axis as it revolves around the sun, this
causes day and night.
Earth’s axis is tilted which causes seasons.
Gravitational forces affect all matter in the universe.
The force of gravity holds all the parts of the Solar System
sun, moons, planets, meteors, asteroids, comets, Milky
Way galaxy
black holes, other galaxies, stars, etc., . . . .
models are a way to represent concepts that cannot be
easily observed (example: the orbit of planets in our solar
system around the sun)
reading a book, watching a video, listening to a story, etc.,
observing the moon in its phases
drawing a shadow, performing an experiment, etc. . . .
are a dark area where an object has blocked the light
are always on the opposite side from the sun and point
away from the sun
are shorter in the summer and longer in the winter
because the sun is higher in the sky in the summer and
lower in the sky in the winter
to have a shadow you need a light source and an object to
block the light
the position of the sun
the time of day
where east and west are
waxing getting larger
waning getting smaller
crescent, ¼, half moon, ¾ , full
takes about a month for the moon to orbit Earth
as the moon revolves around Earth, we see a different
part of the side lit by the sun
