Featured Book Activity
Taiko on a Windy Night
written by Sally Derby, illustrated by Kate Diesler
As a group, have students discuss what is the same and what is different between what we see during the day and night. Illustrations in a book such as The Sunset Switch could be used to guide discussion. Create a Venn diagram on the board or on a large piece of bulletin board paper and write the name of things in the appropriate area of the diagram. Students can also recreate the diagram on a worksheet or in a science journal to refer to later.
