That the earth makes two types of movement. One movement is what causes day and night and the other movement causes the four seasons we have. (the four seasons



are not experienced in Nigeria, so you can as well talk about the rainy season and dry season] But remember, we are in a global world, so try and begin to speak to your kids as global citizens. You can tell them about the four seasons in other parts of the world. If your kids are in urban or semi urban areas, they should be familiar with the four seasons through cartoon programmes.
