Product Description
Challenge middle school students to create THEIR OWN scientific diagram.
This is NOT a worksheet coloring page!


Students are lead through very specific, very detailed steps in order to create a drawing of the Earth's orbit around the sun. In the diagram, each of the four seasons are represented with the proper tilt of the axis. Students will use a protractor (print one online if you don't have any), a ruler, and colored pencils. After following the steps to create the drawing, writing labels, and adding color, students answer 5 analysis questions on the back of their drawing.
