A season is a division of the year, marked by changes in weather, ecology, and hours of daylight.
Seasons result from the yearly revolution of the Earth around the Sun and the tilt of the Earth's
axis relative to the plane of revolution.

spring, summer, autumn and winter. However, ecologists are increasingly using a six-season
model for temperate climate regions that includes pre-spring and late summer as distinct
seasons along with the traditional four.

You all know that food, clothing and shelter are the three basic needs of life. You eat food to
survive and protect yourself from diseases; you need a house to live in. Why do you wear
clothes? You wear clothes for protection against climate, for modesty and beauty, and also to
show status. The material that you use for clothing is called fabric. If you go to a shop to buy
fabric for your dress, you would see a variety of fabrics there. Do you wonder what these fabrics
are made of? How you get variety in fabrics? Why are some materials warm, some soft and
others rough? Why do some materials go bad after washing while others remain the same?
