Identify the current season at location X and explain what causes the season at location X

/ The season at location X is winter. / Because the Earth is tilted 23.5˚, the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun and receives indirect light. The indirect rays spread the energy over a larger area and don’t produce as much heat as direct rays would / The season at location X is winter. / Because the Earth is tilted 23.5˚, the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun and receives indirect light. The indirect rays spread the energy over a larger area and don’t produce as much heat as direct rays would Return

The tables show the average temperatures and daylight hours for a city in the Northern Hemisphere during two different seasons. Using the information from the table, complete the model

A student records the hours of darkness of certain days in the year and records the average temperature for those days in the data table. / Which statement explains the trend seen in the table? / A. The length of darkness causes warmer temperatures / B. The sun rotates closer to Earth to Cause warmer temperatures. / C. Changes in the speed of Earth’s rotation cause changes in Temperature. / D. Changes in the angle and altitude of the sun cause changes in temperature. / Which statement explains the trend seen in the table? / A. The length of darkness causes warmer temperatures / B. The sun rotates closer to Earth to Cause warmer temperatures. / C. Changes in the speed of Earth’s rotation cause changes in Temperature. / D. Changes in the angle and altitude of the sun cause changes in temperature.

D. Changes in the angle and altitude of the sun cause changes in temperature. / As the angle of sunlight becomes less direct, the number of daylight hours decrease and temperatures decrease. Return

Compare a star from the constellation Orion to the Sun. Put a  in the box if it is a property of the Sun and a  in the box if it is a property of a star in Orion.

Return
