The Seasons on a Planet much like Earth
This tutorial contains animations that illustrate factors related to seasons on Earth. There are two sets of animations. The first set establishes viewpoints for observing the seasons and the second set studies the seasons on a planet with a 40-day year. In some of the animations, the user can control variables such as time. There is also a PDF file that features a learning guide about the Seasons on Earth to be used with the animations. This tutorial can serve to augment understanding of the importance, determination and sources of Earth's seasons.
