Earth’s Rotation & Revolution: Crash Course Kids 8.1 by thecrashcourse: So, have you ever wondered why we have seasons? Or maybe where the sun goes when it’s night time? *Hint: It doesn’t actually go anywhere* In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about the Earth’s rotation and revolution and how these things contribute to night and day and how Earth’s tilt gives us seasons.

Day and Night and Earth's Rotation- This clip would be a great attention getter to start our first lesson of the unit. Since its a video, students would be more likely to listen and remember the information.
Pixar's "Day and Night" short film. I used this today for a first grade science lesson on day sky vs. night sky and it was a PERFECT set. It highlights some of the good things about each to get the wheels turning in their head, and the kids really enjoyed it! I followed it up by a Venn diagram of day and night that we completed as a class.
