Program Details

Format

1) Introduce the program and question from a listener
2) Determine if seasons are caused by distance from the sun
3) Evaluate the amount of sunlight and temperatures of Earth throughout the seasons by comparing the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
4) Model the tilt of the Earth and Seasons
5) Respond to the listener's question with evidence to support

Objectives

Students will understand
1) The seasons are caused by the tilt of the Earth.
2) The distance from the sun is greatest when the Northern hemisphere is in winter.
3) The Northern and Southern hemispheres experience opposite seasons due to the tilt of the Earth.
4) The equator receives the most amount of direct sunlight which greatly impacts the temperature.

Standards Alignment

National Standards

Next Gen Science Standard (ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System )
The orbits of Earth around the sun and of the moon around Earth, together with the rotation of Earth about an axis between its North and South poles, cause observable patterns. These include day and night; daily changes in the length and direction of shadows; and different positions of the sun, moon, and stars at different times of the day, month, and year.

Next Gen Science Standard (5-ESS1-2)
Represent data in graphical displays to reveal patterns of daily changes in length and direction of shadows, day and night, and the seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky.

State Standards

South Carolina Science Standard (4.E.3B.2)
Construct explanations of how day and night result from Earth’s rotation on its axis

South Carolina Science Standard (4.E.3B.4)
Obtain and communicate information to describe and compare the biotic factors (including individual organisms, populations, and communities) of different terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

South Carolina Science Standard (4.S.1A.2)
Construct explanations of how day and night result from Earth’s rotation on its axis

South Carolina Science Standard (4.S.1A.6 )
Obtain and communicate information to describe and compare the biotic factors (including individual organisms, populations, and communities) of different terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
