We've been learning about the seasons and the reasons for seasons at our house lately. Here are some pictures taken during the last few days.
We also loved reading this book that explains beautifully the seasons cycle and how any disruption affects the other Earth cycles.
|Using a flashlight to show how the sunlight is more direct at the equator than at the poles.|
|D trying out the months around the sun and using the globe to go around it to see how the different months would be in the different seasons because of the Earth's tilted axis.|
|Visualizing 365 and 1/4 days using the golden beads and the fraction inset.|
|Sorting out the seasons cards from Montessori for Everyone.|
|Doing the birthday walk as some one recently turned 6!|
|The sisters being the earth, are rotating and revolving around the sun!|
