Middle School / Earth Science

Seasons and Temperature

Students will use different models to recreate the effects of the Sun on Earth. In Part 1, students use a model to examine the equinox. In Part 2, students use a protractor to place the Earth model at a tilt and examine, predict, and describe temperature differences between seasons.

Featured Equipment

Temperature Sensor

Wireless Temperature Sensor

The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
