Patterns

• The world is full of patterns.
• Patterns can help us to make predictions.
• Many patterns have a purpose.
• Patterns can be observed in nature.
• Some patterns show growth or age.
• Patterns can be used by some animals for protection (camouflage).


Oceans

• Oceans provide a habitat for a variety of living things.
• Oceans are important for the life cycles of various plants/animals.
• Oceans are used by living things for food, minerals, water, and protection.

Shadows and Light

• The sun affects what we experience on Earth, such as creating shadows and light.
• Heavenly bodies, as they move in space, change the positioning of shadows and light hitting the Earth.
• Light interacts differently with objects depending on distance, angles or the nature of the object, affecting shadows.
• Understanding shadows and light helps humans in many areas of life (astronomy, gardening, solar energy, etc.).
