Name the four seasons of the year?
Seasons are caused by the Earth's tilt and orbit around the Sun. Seasons change temperatures and weather patterns. We experience four seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter.
Summer is the season that occurs between spring and autumn. It is the warmest season of the year and is usually the longest. Autumn is the season that occurs between summer and winter. It is characterized by cool weather and the leaves changing color. Winter is the season that occurs between autumn and spring. It is the coldest season of the year and is usually the shortest.
The Earth's tilt is what causes the changing of the seasons. The longest day of the year (in terms of daylight) is called the summer solstice. In Australia, the seasons are opposite from the northern hemisphere, with summer occurring in December and winter occurring in June.
