Class Panda's new topic is Light and Dark. We have already learned some facts about our sun and talked about night time (nocturnal) animals. We looked up facts about the sun in non fiction books. We know the sun shines less in winter which makes it colder and darker. We know that the moon shines but the sun gives us light. Did you know that the moon just shines like a mirror as the sun bounces its light off the rocky surface of the moon? The moon doesn't have a light of its own.
