What's your favorite season? In this movie, you’ll learn about different seasons and different types of weather. Some places have a wet season and a dry season. Other places go through winter, spring, summer, and fall. You’ll learn how Earth is tilted on its axis, and as our planet orbits the Sun, seasons change in different parts of the world. When it's summer in the northern hemisphere, it's winter in the southern hemisphere. But, the areas around the Equator stay warm throughout the year.

They will predict when the lines for the two towns on the graph will meet, and explain why the number of day and night hours in their town is the same as the number in the southern hemisphere town.
