This last week, sixth graders have been learning about the reasons why we experience seasons.  To understand this concept, they participated in a lab where they were able to measure energy levels at various points throughout earth's orbit around the sun.  Hopefully this solidified the idea that it is the TILT of the earth's axis that causes seasons.
