The length of the day would be shorter.

The length of the day would be longer.

• Question 11
30 seconds
Q. Why do globes lean sideways?
To allow them to spin easier.

• Question 14
120 seconds
Q.

The model shows Earth in several positions relative to the sun. In which position is it winter in North America?

Position 1 because North America receives the most direct sun.

Position 2 because North America is tilted toward the sun.

Position 3 because North America is parallel to the sun.

Position 4 because North America is tilted away from the sun

• Question 15
30 seconds
Q.

Which of these changes would likely occur if the rate of Earth's rotation on it's axis increased?

The length of the seasons would be shorter.

The length of the seasons would be longer.

The length of a day would be shorter.

The length of a day would be longer.

• Question 16
30 seconds
Q.

Which of these locations on Earth experiences the least change in the number of daylight hours throughout the year?

Equator

North Pole

Tropic of Cancer

Tropic of Capricorn

• Question 17
30 seconds
Q.

The beginning of autumn in North America is in September, but the beginning of autumn in South America is March. The diagram shows the positions of Earth, the moon, and the sun on one day in September and one day in March. Why does autumn start in different months of the year in North America and South America?

Earth's orbit around the sun is not a perfect circle.

North America has a larger landmass than South America.

The moon has a greater pull on South America than North America.

Earth's axis has a 23.5 degree tilt.

• Question 18
120 seconds
Q. Students in a science class in Marfa, Texas, made a poster with a diagram to represent a seasonal change in the Northern Hemisphere. Which statement best describes conditions for Earth at Position 1 in the diagram?
There are an equal number of hours of daylight and nighttime in the Northern Hemisphere, and the North Pole is tilted away from the sun.
The Northern Hemisphere has the fewest hours of daylight, and Earth’s axis does not tilt at this position.
There are an equal number of hours of daylight and nighttime in the Northern Hemisphere because Earth’s axis is not tilted in this position.
The Northern Hemisphere has the fewest hours of daylight, and the North Pole is tilted away from the sun.
