Changes in Position and Motion
The Earth is tilted. As it moves around the sun, parts of Earth get different amounts of sunlight. The amount of daylight changes. These changes make each season different.
As the sun moves across the sky, it creates a shadow. A shadow is made when an object blocks light. Watch the video below to see a shadow change as the sun moves across the sky.
