The Seasons Come and Seasons Go, Do you know what makes it SO?

Sixth Grade students participated in a seasons lab where they collected data, used critical thinking skills and made observations as to what might cause seasons.  

Students tested two different hypotheses, distance and tilt of Earth's axis, as they worked with high tech equipment.  It was a great learning experience for all to have a hands-on activity to learn from.

 There are many misconceptions about what causes seasons.  If you think you have any, please see any of our sixth grade student experts.
