Sunlight and Earth


Our Sunlight and Earth lesson plan teaches students how sunlight and its energy affects Earth and the people living on Earth. Students learn the benefits of sunlight to people, plants, and the planet as a whole.


Our Sunlight and Earth lesson plan helps students discover that there is more to the Sun than its light and heat. The lesson introduces the students to other benefits of Sunlight and the energy from the Sun to the planet and people. During this lesson, students are asked to correctly match each related sunray word and color in corresponding paper sunrays. Students are also asked to match given information with the correct reason the Sun is important in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to list the benefits of the Sun and its impact on Earth and people.
