TASK: Day and Night Pre-Test


This task is a pre-test and is to be complete by the student alone and without using technology. It is to find out what the student knows at the moment. They can ask a parent or teacher to read the question or explain the task but they cannot tell them what to draw or write. The more they add and label shows me what they know. Once completed, please stick the sheets into their book.

1. DRAW and LABEL the how day and night happen. Think about correct sizes and colours. If you think something moves, show movement with the use of arrows or provide short explanations.
