Seasons And Weather - Our Sun
The Sun is many times larger than the Earth. It only looks so small because it is so very far away!

Seasons And Weather - Our Sun

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with seasons and the weather, how the Sun is needed by plants and by us, how it lights the world, and the dangers of looking directly at it.

When looking at seasons and the weather in science you have found out about the Sun. It gives us heat and light. It turns night into day. Sunlight is needed by plants to make food. We need the Sun too. Without it we could not live on the Earth. In this quiz you are going to answer some more questions about the Sun and how it affects the seasons and the weather.
