How do seasons impact our lives?
This ranges from the food we eat, the drinks we drink, the clothes we wear and the activities we take part in. We even listen to different music during the different seasons. For most people there are four seasons, winter, spring, summer, and autumn.

When the northern half of the earth leans closer to the sun, it becomes warmer. This season is called summer. While this is happening in the north, it is winter in the southern hemisphere.

Six months later, the northern half of the world tilts away from the sun and it becomes cooler. It is now winter. When this happens, the southern hemisphere is leaning closer to the sun as it becomes warmer. What are the different seasons? Emily McReynolds There are three reasons we have seasons:

Tilt
