How do you explain seasons to kindergarten?
Seasons are caused because of the Earth’s changing relationship to the Sun. The Earth travels around the Sun, called an orbit, once a year or every 365 days. As the Earth orbits the Sun, the amount of sunlight each location on the planet gets every day changes slightly. This change causes the seasons.
How do you explain the Four seasons?
A season is a period of the year that is distinguished by special climate conditions. The four seasons—spring, summer, fall, and winter— follow one another regularly. Each has its own light, temperature, and weather patterns that repeat yearly. In the Northern Hemisphere, winter generally begins on December 21 or 22.

What is the importance of season to us?

What are the four seasons and their months?
The seasons are defined as spring (March, April, May), summer (June, July, August), autumn (September, October, November) and winter (December, January, February).
What season comes first in the year?
According to this definition, each season begins on the first of a particular month and lasts for three months: Spring begins on March 1, summer on June 1, autumn on September 1, and winter on December 1.
Why do days get longer and shorter for kids?
Actually, though, the Earth is tilted 23.4 degrees! (A circle is 360 degrees.) This tilt is the reason that days are longer in the summer and shorter in the winter. The hemisphere that’s tilted closest to the Sun has the longest, brightest days because it gets more direct light from the Sun’s rays.
What is the shortest season?
It’s Earth’s shortest season. The 2020 December solstice will happen on December 21. It’s when the sun will reach its southernmost point in our sky for this year. This solstice marks the beginning of the winter season in the Northern Hemisphere, and the start of the summer season in the Southern Hemisphere.
