Kinesthetic Astronomy: Longer Days, Shorter Nights

This Kinesthetic Astronomy: Longer Days, Shorter Nights lesson plan also includes:

A lamp, four globes, and some signs taped around the room are all you need to set up a solar system simulation for teaching how Earth's tilted axis creates the seasons. (Sticky dots are also needed, but not mentioned in the materials list.) Use this enlightening activity to meet fifth grade Next Generation Science Standards in conjunction with other terrific kinesthetic astronomy lessons by the same publisher.
