Carter needs help
« on: April 18, 2018, 01:45:43 pm »

Carter has to ask 5 adults this question:
"Why does the Earth have seasons?"

Anyone care to answer?

Hi Carter I'll give it a try.
I believe that it has to do the angles of the sun as the earth orbits said sun.

Hope I'm right otherwise I'm a dummy

Because the Earth is tilted on its axis, half the earth is tilted closer to the sun (summer) and half is tilted away (winter).  When the northern hemisphere (USA) is tilted away (winter) the southern hemisphere (Australia) is tilted closer and has summer.

I was going to say that it has to do with the fact that the earth is tilted on its axis.  Our local tv station has a thing called Wham Cam. The weather guy goes around taking video as he asks a weather related question much like this one and people try to answer. You’d be surprised to see what explanations folks come up with-some of them are really funny! 

Anyway, It might be fun if you could find 5 people who’d be willing to answer this question on video. Aunts, uncles, cousins maybe? The class might enjoy watching it, with the permission of participants of course. Oh and teacher’s permission, too!
