1 The Reasons for Seasons By Gail Gibbons Recommended Reading for grades 3-5 DD This book is about the four seasons and the wonders that come with each one of them. It explains how the position of the Earth in relation to the sun causes winter, spring, summer, and fall. We get to enjoy the four seasons as they repeat themselves year after year.

3 Name Grade Read the following text. Answer questions 1-4. The sun warms the surface of the Earth, the planet we live on. The tilt of the Earth in relation to the sun changes throughout the year. This is what makes the seasons. Each season lasts about three months. Four seasons make a year. That s how long it takes the Earth to revolve, or make one trip, around the sun. As the Earth circles the sun, different parts of Earth are closer to the others. This affects the amount of light and heat they receive. Earth is slightly tipped as it turns on its axis. It makes one full rotation on its axis every 24 hours as it moves along its path around the sun. When the North Pole is tipped toward the sun and the South Pole is tipped away, it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere and winter in the Southern Hemisphere. The seasons of one hemisphere are always opposite of those in the other hemisphere. Multiple Choice What makes the seasons? A. The movement of the sun. B. The planets. C. The tilt of the Earth in relation to the sun. D. The rotation of the Earth. How long does it take the Earth to revolve around the sun? A. One season B. One year C. Three months D. Four months How long does it take the Earth to make one full rotation on its axis? A. One year B. One day C. One month D. One season

4 What season is it in the Southern Hemisphere when it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere? A. Fall B. Winter C. Spring D. Summer Office use only 2 pt. question

5 Short Response Question 1 The Earth s axis is the line that goes through Earth joining the North and South Poles. The Equator is the line that goes around the Earth dividing the northern half of Earth from the southern half. Give one similarity and one difference between the Earth s axis and equator. Office use only 2 pt. question

6 Short Response Question 2 Areas near the equator have little temperature change during the year. These places are hardly affected by the tilt of the earth. Instead the seasons are marked by the alternating rainy and dry periods, two rainy and two dry seasons each year. Each day at the equator daylight and darkness are almost always equal. At the North Pole and the South Pole it is always cold. When a pole is tilted far away from the sun it is winter. During parts of the winter, the sun never appears over the horizon. It is always dark. When a pole is tilted closer to the sun it is summer. At times it is always light. What three areas are not affected by the tilt of the Earth? Give one detail about the temperature in each area not affected by the tilt of the Earth. Office use only 2 pt question

7 Short Response Question 3 A & B The first day of spring is called the spring equinox. When spring begins in the Northern Hemisphere, Earth has moved along its path so that the sun is directly opposite the equator. On this day, daylight and darkness are the same length of time over the entire Earth. Spring is the season when some birds that have been away for the winter return. Some animals that slept all winter wake up and look for food. 3A. What is the spring equinox? What is special about the daylight and darkness on Earth that day? 3B. According to the text what are two things some animals do during the spring season? Office use only 3A. 2 pts. 3B. 2 pts.

8 Extended Response Reading ~ Earth and its many relationships to the sun are the reasons for the seasons. Use details from the story to give reasons why each season is different. Name the season and include the following Earth s relationship to the sun Temperature Activities people participate in Date the season starts

11 Tips for Parents 1. Read the entire book before filling out the form 2. Yes, you may read it to your child 3. Ask questions along the way ~ i.e. vocabulary inference, predicting what will happen next 4. When students answer your questions ask them what from the text gave them the clues to help with their answer 5. Have children do drafts on scrap paper for the written response first a. Review for spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc. b. Enhance the vocabulary words in the response i. Change ~ like to adore ii. Change ~ want to desire etc. 6. Develop vocabulary word list from the stories and use them at home whenever possible 7. Discuss what your child learned from the story not just retelling the story
