Scaling Seasons Time Vocab Seasons - Part 2
100
To help us better understand scientific concepts that are too far away, too big or too small to be seen.
What are scientific models used for?
100
The tilt of Earth's axis.
What is the reason for seasons?
100
Earth's rotation
What about the S-E-M system creates a day?
100
An imaginary line that a planet rotates on.
What is an axis?
100
Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring
State Earth’s four seasons.
200
A model that shows an object's correct size.
What is a scale model?
200
When Earth is tilted towards the Sun.
How is summer created?
200
24 hours
How long does it take Earth to rotate on its axis?
200
To spin on its axis.
Define rotate
200
The Earth is NOT tilted towards or away from the Sun. Comes after winter.
What about the S-E-M system creates spring?
300
Sun, Earth, Moon
Rank the following objects from largest to smallest: Moon, Sun, Earth
300
When Earth is tilted away from the Sun.
How is winter created?
300
Earth revolving around the Sun
What about the S-E-M creates a year?
300
To circle around another object.
Define revolve
300
The Earth is NOT tilted towards or away from the Sun. Comes after summer.
What about the S-E-M system creates fall?
400
Sun-Basketball, Earth-tennis ball, Marble-moon
Using a tennis ball, basketball, and a marble, Correctly identify which can be used for the Earth, The Sun, and the Moon.
400
Winter = less direct light and
Summer = More direct light
Compare the angles of the sun in winter vs. summer.
400
A year or 365 days
How long does it take the Earth to revolve completely around the Sun?
400
The path an object travels during its revolution.
Define orbit
400
There would be no seasons.
What would happen to Earth’s seasons if Earth’s axis wasn’t tilted?
500
No, the Sun should be larger than the Earth for the model to be to scale.
Would a model of the Sun and Earth be to scale if the Sun were smaller than the Earth? Explain your answer.
500
It is colder because in winter the Earth is tilted away from the Sun.
Explain how it is colder in the winter if Earth is closer to the Sun.
500
The Moon revolving around the Earth.
What about the S-E-M system creates a month?
500
......
Pick up an object and model it rotating and revolving.
500
It is warmer in the summer because Earth is tilted towards the Sun.
Explain how it is warmer in the summer if Earth is farther away from the Sun.
