This is an activity about understanding how the Earth?s axial tilt changes the angle at which sunlight hits the Earth, contributing to the variations in temperature throughout the seasons. Learners will create a sun angle analyzer in order to see what happens to the concentration of sunlight when the Sun is at different angles throughout the year. This will help learners realize Earth?s seasonal temperature ... Full description.
