Reason for the Seasons

Reason for the Seasons

In this activity (on page 6 of the PDF), learners plot the path of the sun's apparent movement across the sky on two days, with the second day occurring two or three months after the first. This is an introductory activity in a guide related to the science of sleep and daily rhythms, but can also be used to explain why we have seasons. This activity also has a strong math element as learners will use a protractor to estimate the angle of the sun in a model. This lesson guide includes background information, setup and management tips, extensions and handouts.
