Summer Solstice

Summer officially arrives on June 21, the summer solstice. It’s considered the longest day of the year because it has the most daylight hours between sunrise and sunset.

In the summer, the North Pole tilts toward the sun, so the Northern Hemisphere gets more sunlight. On the solstice, the North Pole is tilted the closest to the sun. On this day, the sun reaches its highest point in the sky. (Information from TNS) 

Newspaper Activity: Look at the newspaper’s weather report for different symbols used to illustrate weather. Then design your own symbols for these weather conditions: sunny, cloudy, partly cloudy, showers, thundershowers, and snow.
