Friday Fun: A Perfect Pair
Arctic Lights, Arctic Nights by Debbie S. Miller + How Do the Seasons Change? by Melissa Stewart
In How Do the Seasons Change?, the title question propels readers through a series of brief chapters that provide background information (how Earth orbits the sun, how Earth spins on its axis, how Earth’s tilt effects us, etc.) that eventually allows students to fully understand the topic and come up with the answer on their own. Photos and clear diagrams expand the text and reinforce the scientific explanations.
