Changing Seasons Science Game

This game will help children learn more about the seasons and changing weather conditions.

Weather and Vegetation Changes and Their Impact on Earth's Tilt
What is the cause of the changing seasons? Earth's 23-degree tilt is the biggest factor in our changing seasons. The imaginary line running through the middle, from the North to the South Pole, determines the tilt. Other factors such as distance from the Sun and Earth's position on the Earth play a smaller role. These factors will be covered in future articles. Let's now look at the main factors that influence our changing seasons. This article will explain how weather changes and vegetation affect the Earth's tilt.

Earth's tilt affects seasons
The tilt of the Earth's orbit is responsible for the seasons we experience. The tilt of our axis looks like a line running through the middle of the Earth. This tilt alters the angle between the Earth's surface, and the Sun's radiations. The brighter areas of the Earth will get more light, and the Earth's axis will tilt to the right. These variations in light availability will determine which season we experience.
The imaginary pole running through the middle is the axis of Earth. Every day, the Earth revolves around this pole, turning one turn per day. This rotation is what causes day and nights and eventually seasons. The Earth was in a state of flux during its early years. This tilt has returned to its original position over the past few million years.

Activities that are associated with each season
Seasons are natural phenomena that indicate when certain activities or processes are possible. They can also be linked to specific weather patterns and natural phenomena. The hurricane season is when tropical storms are most likely, and hunting season is when wild animals can be hunted. The term monsoon is used to describe winds blowing during monsoon. It is associated with the rainy seasons in South Asia, and the Indian Ocean.
The seasons can be used by children to teach them about time. Children may find the concept of time difficult to grasp at first. However, they will be able to understand it through everyday activities and the seasons. Children can also learn about the meaning of each season and the activities that go with it. One simple activity that focuses only on the seasons is a memory-game where children have to identify objects associated with each season.

Changes in the vegetation
There are many factors that affect the length and nature of the vegetation's seasonal changes. Temperature and day length are important factors in temperate areas, while rainfall events play an even greater role in drier locations. Rainfall events are predictable and so vegetation growth is coordinated with the monsoon. Not only are changes visible in the vegetation, but subtle ones can also occur. These are just a few of the many factors that affect the vegetation in the changing seasons.
Climate is influenced by vegetation. It influences the earth's albedo and the amount water vapor and carbon dioxide in its atmosphere. Humans can alter the earth's vegetation and affect its climate and weather. All plants are considered vegetation. All plants, regardless of whether they are trees, shrubs or grasses play an important part in the earth's water cycle and energy balance.
