Choose the correct figure of speech. the stars twinkled like a million tiny candles in the sky. simile metaphor personification


On a clear, dark night, our eyes can see about 6,000 or so stars in the sky. They seem to twinkle, or change their brightness, all the time. In fact, most of the stars are shining with a steady light. The movement of air (sometimes called turbulence) in the atmosphere of Earth causes the starlight to get slightly bent as it travels from the distant star through the atmosphere down to us on the ground. This means that some of the light reaches us directly and some gets bent slightly away. To our eyes, this makes the star seem to twinkle.

You will notice that stars closer to the horizon will appear to twinkle more than other stars. This is because there is a lot more atmosphere between you and a star near the horizon than between you and a star higher in the sky. Go out some night soon and have a look!

Light from stars is bent causing it to "twinkle"


When the light reaches our atmosphere, it is bent or refracted( because it bounces and bumps in the cold and hot layers of our skies) causing it to appear twinkly.

it's when starlight enters our atmosphere its affected by winds in the atmosphere and densities. this causes the light from the 'stars' to 'twinkle' when seen from the ground.

According to Piaget, she is in the preoperational stage of cognitive development.


According to Piaget, the preoperational stage of cognitive development is the second stage. It is initiated when the child is around the age of two years old, lasting until the age of seven. Children at this stage are able to work with symbols. However, they are still unable to do logical (concrete) thinking. During this stage, children present animism - the belief that inanimate objects are alive and have feelings. That is why Sarah thinks the stars twinkle because they are happy.
