Catching Some Rays

Sixth graders explore the tilt of Earth's axis. In this Earth lesson, 6th graders read a Greek mythology story explaining why there are seasons. Students build a sun-ray gathering tool from styrofoam, glue, thermometers, skewers, and tape. Students graph the temperature results and discuss how their sunray tool is similar to the tilt of the Earth's axis.
