    Hi Carol Anne,

    Using physical models to show the Earth and the light of day/lack of light for night is so important.

    If you ask young children why is it dark at night you often get an answer related to what people do at night – “It’s dark so people can sleep” – and it takes some time for children to realise that they can explain what is happening to make it dark rather than giving their own child-centred explanation.

    Do you have particular day and night images that you use?
