The Four Seasons Grade One
What is a season? A season is one of 4 periods in a year. Each season lasts about 3 months. In each season, there are changes in temperature, weather and length of daylight.
Why do we have seasons? Seasons are caused by the earths position in relation to the sun. The seasons change as the earth moves closer or farther away from the sun.
Some places dont have seasons. Why? Some places are close to the center of the earth near the equator These places do not move closer or farther away from the sun. Because of this, these places stay very warm all year round.
