Day and Night Mini-Book

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 10 pages | Grades: K - 1

Learn about the differences between night and day with this printable mini-book designed for kindergarten and first-grade students.

Day and Night Activities for Kindergarten and First Grade

As students learn more about the world around them, they may begin to observe how night and day are different. We see different things and do different activities during the daytime and nighttime.

Teach Starter has created a printable mini-book to use with your kindergarten and first-grade students during your space and solar system lessons. This book has 10 mini-pages where students will learn about how the sky changes from day to night each day and objects you can see during these periods.

There are 2 versions of this book, one that is a reader and one that has fill-in-the-blank spaces for students to complete sentences.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your science lessons. 

In addition to individual student work time, use this mini-book to enhance learning through guided science groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

If there are students needed additional support, encourage them to read the book with a peer or a teacher.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

For students who need an additional challenge, encourage them to draw a picture of the day or night sky and label the objects that they may say.
