2 Very basic informations and ideas
This article doesn't really give any new or exciting ideas. It goes over basic benchmarks for students regarding the concepts of distances in space. The intro activity I thought was good for elementary students and maybe middle. I think high school students would view it as a joke. The article was useful in providing benchmarks and concepts students should know but that was about it.

4 Great information you may have forgotten
Teaching seasons can be very difficult.It is a very hard concept for students to grasp. Many times adults have forgotten the facts too. This resource gives accurate, in-depth information. Great diagrams that can be used in the classroom. There are links that address common student misconceptions, which are often the biggest hurdle in teaching this subject. There were critical thinking links of "what if's" regarding tilt and distance. Perfect for really getting the wheels turning in the students' heads. I didn't give five stars because I thought there could have been better diagrams and activities for the students that could be more exciting.
