|Seasons: Why It's Essential|
This lesson gives high school students a clear understanding of why the seasons occur and reinforces the ability to articulate this concept to others. Students review the basics of the seasons and design their own monuments to keep track of and commemorate the seasons. In the process, students will review their understanding of the science behind the seasons, learn some theories about Stonehenge, Medicine Wheel, and other monuments, and reflect on the methods in their own culture of commemorating the passing of the seasons.
