One year on Earth - Understanding seasons
In this set of two activities, pupils will develop their understanding of seasons and the basic mechanism behind the different seasons on Earth. Pupils will learn that trees look different at different times of the year due to seasons, that seasonal changes can be seen from space and how to analyse images and extract relevant information. These activities will help pupils to explain the relationship between the Sun and the movement of the Earth and its influence on daytime and night-time and to explain why there are seasons and the influence of the sun on these.
