• ### What is the setting of this picture?

Hints

Look for clues in the picture that show you what the setting is.

Look at the sun in the picture. Is it day or night time?

Look at what the characters are wearing in the picture. Are they warm or cold?

Solution

This picture shows the setting of the beach in the summer. The characters are wearing their swimming costumes and are sitting in the sand by the sea.

• ### What time of day does each setting show?

Hints

Look at the pictures of the sky. This will give you a clue about whether it is daytime or night-time.

At sunset, the sky changes to many different colours.

In the morning, it sometimes looks like the sun is rising up from the hills.

Solution
• Day: The sun is out and the sky is still bright so it is daytime.
• Sunset: The sky is a purple and orange colour because the sun is setting.
• Night: It is dark and you can only see the girl in the streetlight.
• Morning: The sun is rising on a farm.
• ### What is the setting of these pictures?

Hints

Look at the time, place and even season to determine the setting.

Check to see if the sky shows you what time of day it is.

In one picture there is a hopscotch. Where would this often be found?

Solution
• The desert: There are some sandy dunes and nothing else can be seen in the picture.
• The amusement park at night: The sky is dark and the picture shows two characters on a roller coaster.
• The park during the day: There is concrete and trees, two characters are playing hopscotch together and the sky is bright.
• The kitchen: There is a cooker and the two characters are baking biscuits together.
• ### What is the same and what is different in each setting?

Hints

It is night-time in both settings.

In one picture the characters are by tall buildings and in the other they are in a field by a forest.

Solution

Same:

• The time of day is night-time in both settings.
• The main characters are Zayd the dragon and Ari the rabbit in both settings.
Different:
• The place is different because one setting is in the city and one is in the forest.
• What the characters are doing is different because in one Zayd and Ari are having a picnic and in the other they are not.

• ### Which image shows the setting of a bedroom?

Hints

A bedroom usually has a place to sleep.

A bedroom is found indoors.

Solution

Hints

Which image shows daytime?

Look for the image that shows the leaves on the trees that have changed colour for the autumn.
