Seasons

This quiz addresses part of the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2 in Geography. Specifically it looks at the seasons and how they differ around the world. It is one of 50 quizzes to help you understand the world around you.

In summer, days are longer and nights are shorter. In winter it is the other way round. Summer and winter differ from one another. This quiz is all about the seasons. It also looks at how the seasons change around the world. In the UK and in a country like New Zealand, moving from summer to winter is very important. Plants grow more in summer, and it can be dark going to school in the winter.
