First graders use their observations to describe daily and seasonal cycles. through a demonstration using a suspended ball and flashlight, they determine the time of day in various locations. Next, 1st graders participate in a simulation of times of day and night using sound effects and a sun lamp. In a hands-on activity, students also make homemade thermometers from common materials.
