What causes the seasons? It is caused by the movement of the Earth around the sun, the tilt of the Earth, and how high the sun will get in the sky.

1) Direct Sunlight (heat energy) - Covers a small surface area; heat is concentrated and warmer; sun is high in the sky; summer heat energy is direct. 2) Indirect Sunlight (heat energy) - Covers a large surface area; heat is spread out and colder; sun is low in the sky; winter heat energy is indirect.

The material of the winter clothes is thicker and warmer than summer clothes.
