  • One reasons we have seasons is because of the tilt of the earth on it's axises.
  • Anthor is, how many direct rays of sunlight we get, if were tilted away we get less, if were tilted towards the sun we get more which makes it warmer.
  • Also the earth's movement around the sun Cuases us to have seasons.
  • It is warm in July because the earth is tilted towards the sun so we get lots of direct sunlight which makes it warmer, and in January we are tilted away so we don't get lots of direct rays from the sun so it's colder.
