I like how the book shows an experiment for the reader I like how it goes step by step to help the reader understand how the earth rotates and why the sun doesn t shine on only one side of the earth. What gives us the seasons This book addresses the fact of the rotation of the Earth around the Sun and the results of this rotation Featuring diagrams, key vocabulary and hands on activities, this book brings science to life I enjoy this book because of its inclusion of activity and hands on practices, allows the students to feel involved in the learning process They are able to see how the earth rotates around the Sun, instead of just seeing it in images The vocabulary addressed is also defined in an age appropriate manner This book it perfect for lessons about the Sun or the Earth Students start to look at the Earth rather just their family unit and community Once we start looking at the Earth we start looking at the different seasons Students are often very curious about the cause of the seasons Ages K Grade 3 Are There Reasons For The Seasons It All Starts With The Sun The Sun Shines On The Earth And Keeps It WarmWe Have Day And Night Because The Earth Spins On Its Axis And We Spend Part Of Each Day Facing The Sun And Part Of The Day Facing Away From It But Why Are Days Longer In The Summer Than In The Winter The Answer To This Question Is Explained Through An Experiment Using A Pencil, An Orange, And A Flashlight And When You See This, You Ll Know The Reasons For The Seasons This level 2 nonfiction picture book does a good job at introducing the concept of seasons It discusses with a few sentences and explanatory illustrations topics like the earth s rotation, day and night, and why the seasons are different temperatures Using the example of a pencil driven though an orange, they show children shining a flashlight on the orange while rotating it, to show the different seasons How the seasons are different at the poles and at the equator is also addressed, as is the difference between the northern and southern hemispheres There is a list of interesting facts at the end of the book.The new illustrations by Michael Rex will appeal to the fans of his fiction work They are bright and clearly show the concepts being covered, with occasional touches of humor The text is written at an appropriate level, and the concepts are reinforced through out the book Younger children may still need help interpreting the information, but older readers will come away from the book with a basic understanding of what makes the seasons change While this book would be very useful for read aloud in a wide range of classrooms, it is also a good choice to offer readers who have questions about the world around them or just want a break from stories There are many titles in the Science Let s Read and Find Out series, and readers who like to look at the pictures in the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness books will be glad to find science books written at a level where they can understand the information. Most of this book was taken up with the experiment of simulating the earth s orbit around the sun with the tilt of the axis We did the experiment but did not find the directions well written to go with the illustrations we used another book instead for a similar experiment My kids did enjoy the juxtaposition of the poles and opposite sides of the earth to show differences in season, day night, etc. S2E2 Students will investigate the position of sun and moon to show patterns throughout the year a Investigate the position of the sun in relation to a fixed object on earth at various times of the day b Determine how the shadows change through the day by making a shadow stick or using a sundial c Relate the length of the day and night to the change in seasons for example Days are longer than the night in the summer d Use observations and charts to record the shape of the moon for a period of time. this book was a nice little book to read, the children i actually read it to enjoyed it, we took a walk around the building and found item that we thought went with what season, its fun and colorful the book is pre k appropriate.LEbring in items from different seasons and let the children discuss the difference in seasons. I thought this book was great and I like the illustrations They are simple but allow young students to understand how seasons happen I would have my students do the sun and earth activity that is in my story It allows studnets to see light reflect off a globe using a flash light The indirect and direct sunlight allows them to see a visual on how the seasons happen. This book does a great job of explaining and illustrating how the rotation of the earth and its relationship to the sun create the four seasons of the year Even without doing the little demonstration suggested in the book, my five year old really grasped the concepts because the diagrams were so clear This book also renewed her interest in learning about eclipses, and she was able to make connections between this book and what she previously read in Eclipse Darkness in Daytime. This book covers the topic of the sun, and how it works to provide the different seasons on the earth Informative and chocked full of examples, and a project to do that provide a hands on learning experience.
