What is the difference between day and night? The Sun shines during the day. We cannot see the Sun at night. So it is dark at night. As well as changing the weather the parts of the year, or seasons, affect the length of days. In winter days are shorter and nights longer, but in summer days are longer and nights shorter.

This quiz will help you see just how much you have learned already.
