The Tilting Earth

Fourth graders use a styrofoam ball on a stick to represent earth and a light bulb in the center of the room to represent the sun. They walk around the light, holding their sticks at an angle to show the tilt of the earth's axis. They research the months of the year and when people in Australia experience spring, summer, winter, and fall.
