What Causes Seasons?

To focus on the fourth day of Creation a little longer, the girls discovered why we have the four different seasons.  Very simply put, the four seasons exist because of the tilt of the earth on its axis and because of the earth's orbit around the sun.


Mac with the flashlight represented the sun and Izzie was the earth.

 To learn a little bit more about the seasons, we read The Reasons For Seasons.

Izzie wrote and drew about her favorite two seasons!

Spring

   

In the spring it rains.  There are flowers, insects, and big rainbows.  I like spring.

Summer
I love her picture of the beach! 


In the summer it is sunny.  I like to go surfing and build sand castles.
