Sixth grade students have been learning about the reasons for the seasons.  They were able to take data readings at four different globes for both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.  Then, students analyzed their data to determine which globe represented which season.  Students also found that their data for the two hemispheres showed why the hemispheres have opposite seasons.  Students were able to prove through this lab why Earth's tilt and revolution around the Sun cause the seasons.
