Product Description

Looking for something different to help your students understand WHY the tilt of the Earth causes the seasons? You found it! Students will first use flashlights, held at different angles, to show how the distribution of light/heat differs with this variable. Follow up questions included. (You will need flashlights. Students can share. I typically have one flashlight for every three students, and they need to take turns). Following the flashlight modeling and discussion, work as a class to diagram how positions in the orbit correlate to the seasons and direct vs. indirect sunlight. These two activities (about 2 class periods) will best help in understanding if done back to back. All student sheets shown in preview. Answer key included. If you purchase the Sun, Earth, Moon System Bundle, these pages are all part of the student workbook.
