Milankovitch cycles and temperatures on Earth

Today's new ELI is 'The Earth and Milankovitch cycles – by hand; modelling the Earth’s squashed orbit, tilt and wobble using your hands'.

Pupils can find the Milankovitch cycles, of the variation in the solar radiation received by the Earth, difficult to understand. This activity uses hand modelling to consolidate learning.
Other activities related to temperatures on Earth, solar radiation and the Earth in space can be found on our website by using the alphabetical index or the search engine.
