Reasons for Seasons

Students investigate a model of the tilt of the Earth in its relationship to the Sun during the different seasons of the year. They study the solstices and equinoxes, while determining how sunlight hits the Earth with different angles in different locations. Finally, they determine the causal factors for seasonal change.
