NASA Spotlites are short (90-120 second) student-produced videos that allow learners to actively confront and disprove science misconceptions. These videos are paired with classroom-ready 5E lessons that will engage learners through interactive technology. Use NASA eClips lessons and the Spotlite challenge to increase your learners' scientific literacy.


In this activity, students explain that Earth's seasons are caused by the tilt of Earth's axis combined with the position of Earth in its orbit around the sun as a result of watching the Spotlite video, learning the vocabulary collaboratively, and discussing the sun-Earth relationship.
