How does seasons change?

The seasons change because of the Earth's orbit. The Earth, actually, is always slightly slanted when it orbits the sun. So when the Earth is going around the sun, the sun will shine straight onto the northern hemisphere or the southern hemisphere. So when the sun shines in the southern hemisphere it would be either summer or spring. Furthermore, if the sun shines in the northern hemisphere, it would be either winter or autumn.
