Key Concepts: revolution, rotation, Earth's tilt, seasons, direct sunlight, angles, modeling, activity
In order to develop a firm grasp on how our planet works, it is important to understand the Earth's motions in space and how they are related to the occurrence of seasons. In this lesson plan, students will connect real-world examples to differentiate between rotation and revolution, examine diagrams and explanations of seasons, demonstrate how the angle at which the Earth receives changes temperature and compete in a game to model the seasons. This lesson plan is very interactive and will leave learners with a solid understanding of seasons.
