Sixth grade students have been discovering the reasons we have seasons.  As part of this discovery, students participated in a lab with four globes set up around the sun and worked to determine which globe represented each season.  Students gathered data by reading multimeters, measuring shadows, and analyzing the tilt at each globe.  In the end, students were able to correctly identify the season of each globe by collaborating and interpreting their data.
