The Sun, Earth's Angles, and the Seasons

Learners determine if the angle of light bombardment is a factor in heat absorption. They correlate these findings to the tilt of the Earth and the seasons. Students fold a pice of black construction paper in half, lengthwise. They tape the short edges together making an envelope. Learners use the envelope to hold their thermometer in the experiment.
