Weather Lab: Reasons for the Seasons


My daughter is trying to figure out which hemispheres have winter while the others have summer. It's tricky showing rotation and revolutions at the same time!
We are completing science experiments here and there, using the earth science curriculum from Pandia Press. We're not really doing them in order and sometimes we substitute for other things but the experiments are quick and easy and most of the materials can be found at home.

In a few weeks, InshaAllah, I hope to get them outside during the night so that we can cover the sections on space. I am also using the Handbook of Nature Study and so far, we've used it to read about the interesting things that we find in our backyard, like the yellow jacket that found its way into the house on Saturday!
