Ever wonder why we have seasons?
A lot of people think it’s because the Earth gets further away from the sun in winter, and closer in the summer. But, it’s actually more interesting than that. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about how the Earth’s tilt is responsible for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
This first series is based on 5th grade science. We’re super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!
