Product Description
Middle school students often have a misconception that seasons have something to do with the Earth being closer to the Sun in summer and farther away in winter. This worksheet activity helps BUST THAT MYTH! NGSS MS-ESS1-1

Students are given data about how far apart the Earth and the Sun are during each month. On a grid provided, they create a bar graph to display the data, and then answer a few analysis questions including a claims/evidence/reasoning section. They can clearly see that in the Northern Hemisphere we are NOT closer to the sun in summer!

This myth-busting activity would only be effective in the Northern Hemisphere, where kids associate winter with December, January, and February.
