During the year, the seasons change depending on the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth as it revolves around the Sun.. The seasons are caused as the Earth, tilted on its axis, travels in a loop around the Sun each year. Summer happens in the hemisphere tilted towards the Sun, and winter happens in the hemisphere tilted away from the Sun. They are spring, summer, fall, and winter. The weather is different during each season. As the weather changes, plants change, too, and animals change their behavior to suit the weather. In spring, the weather begins to get warmer and trees and other plants grow new leaves. Summer is the hottest season and has long, usually sunny, days.   A season is a period of time marked by changes in weather and hours of daylight. There are four seasons within a year: winter, spring, summer, and autumn. But while weather is related to the seasons, it doesn't cause them. Earth's seasons are a result of its changing position as it circles the Sun in the course of a year. This clip shows the array of behaviour shown by plants and animals throughout the year, in tune with the seasons and the seasonal weather. Suitable for Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and Early and 1st Level.

It turns out that the elliptical orbit of the Earth has little effect on the seasons. Instead, it is the degree tilt of the planet's rotational axis that causes us to have winter and summer.. The diagram below demonstrates what happens. Children are often scared of thunderstorms, but they love jumping in puddles of water and looking at rainbows after a storm ends. Making observations about the weather and discussing climate are great ways to teach children about science, especially since weather is something children can easily relate to . As the earth spins on its axis, producing night and day, it also moves about the sun in an elliptical (elongated circle) orbit that requires about 1/4 days to complete. The earth's spin axis is tilted with respect to its orbital plane. This is what causes the seasons. When the earth's axis. When do children learn about the seasons in primary school?
