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.
