At any time half of the Earth faces the sun. This part has DAY. The other half of the Earth faces away from the Sun. It receives no light. It is dark and has NIGHT.

(This is some more information. ...We have day and night because the Earth rotates. It spins on its axis, which is an imaginary line passing through the North and South Poles. The Earth takes a whole day (24 hours) to makea complete turn. The sun is the source of light for day.)

3) Label the diagram below with Aphelion and Perihelion (Go to this site for the answer.)

Label the diagram below with Aphelion and Perihelion. Add the season for number 1 and 2.

THE SEASONS AND AXIS TILT

REASONS FOR THE SEASONS

• The Earth’s orbit is nearly circular; this is evidence that seasons are
not caused by changes in Earth’s distance from the Sun.
• Different parts of the Earth have different average temperatures
at the same time; this is evidence that seasons are not caused by
changes in Earth’s distance from the Sun.
• Scientific explanations are based on evidence from investigations.
