Group J The Seasons

the reason its somtimes winter, summer, spring and autumn is that the eath spins on an slightly tilted axes. In the winter, the North Pole is a little further from the Sun, and so the sunlight hits the North Pole at more of an angle, and it has more of the Earth's atmosphere to go through before it gets to the Earth.
in the summer the north pole is pointed more towards the sun so it is warmer around the north pole and in the winter the sun is further away from the noth pole so it is colder around the north pole. if you live in austrailea their summer will be winter for sombody on the other side of the world.earthsun.gif
