Modeling the Seasons

Junior geologists become the force that makes the world go around! With a lamp on the floor in the middle of the room to represent the sun, volunteers hold a globe, revolve, and rotate. Observers notice how the light hitting the globe changes. In this way, they visualize how Earth's tilted axis leads to seasonal changes. This is a clever approach to presenting this concept to your earth science learners.
