How do day and night and the seasons work?

The ELI 'Earth on Earth' uses a globe in the sunshine to show how day/night and the seasons work.

A model globe is fixed in the same position, relative to the Sun, as the real Earth, allowing pupils to clearly see how day and night and the seasons work.

'Seasons - the effect of our tilted Earth' is an indoor demonstration explaining the changing seasons.

A globe is ‘walked’ round a circle of pupils, with a bright light at the centre, to show how the tilt of the Earth relative to the Sun creates different seasons.

More similar teaching ideas can be found in the Earth in Space category on our website.
