Seasons: Why It's Essential
High school students should have a clear understanding of why the seasons occur and should be able to articulate this concept to others. This lesson reinforces this knowledge by having students review the basics of the seasons and design their own monuments to keep track of and commemorate the seasons. In the process students will review their understanding of the science behind the seasons, learn some theories about Stonehenge, Medicine Wheel, and other monuments, and reflect on their own culture's methods of commemorating the passing of the seasons.
