This is a SERIES OF FOUR lessons/activities on the seasons, solstices, and equinoxes. These lessons are a great way to teach and/or review the number of daylight hours, seasons, rotation/revolution, the latitude of direct rays, sun's path, the meaning of solstice and equinox, and how and why solstices and equinoxes are celebrated around the world. This resource includes maps, images, questions, links to websites with additional resources, answer keys, and suggested lesson plans, as well as a vocabulary list and a chart for student use.

I find this to be a great activity to do right before winter break (instead of a holiday activity, do a winter solstice activity). This can be part of a unit on seasons or 4-5 days of lessons.

For a preview see the Winter Solstice FREEBIE!! a portion of the activity, with the answer key.

Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons. Examples of models can be physical, graphical, or conceptual.
Develop a model based on evidence to illustrate the life span of the sun and the role of nuclear fusion in the sun’s core to release energy that eventually reaches Earth in the form of radiation. Emphasis is on the energy transfer mechanisms that allow energy from nuclear fusion in the sun’s core to reach Earth. Examples of evidence for the model include observations of the masses and lifetimes of other stars, as well as the ways that the sun’s radiation varies due to sudden solar flares (“space weather”), the 11-year sunspot cycle, and non-cyclic variations over centuries. Assessment does not include details of the atomic and sub-atomic processes involved with the sun’s nuclear fusion.
