What are the hemispheres of the Earth?

A hemisphere is one half of a sphere, so any sphere can be divided equally in two by a plane through its center.

The geographical hemispheres of Earth are the cartological divisions of its surface. The most common are the Northern and Southern Hemispheres (separated by the equator) and the Eastern and Western Hemispheres (defined by the arbitrary E and W longitude designations). Locations up to 180° west of the Greenwich or Prime Meridian are the Western Hemisphere. Locations up to 180° east are in the Eastern Hemisphere.

Continents entirely in the Western Hemisphere are North and South America. Continents entirely in the Eastern Hemisphere are Asia and Australia. Most of Africa, most of Europe, and half of Antarctica are also in the Eastern Hemisphere.

The only continents that lie entirely in the Southern Hemisphere are Australia and Antarctica.

What causes the seasons in the northern hemisphere to be the opposite of those in the southern hemisphere?

The earth revolves around the sun but it's tilted. The angle of the tilt doesn't change just the position of the planet. The summer is when that part of the globe is tilted towards the sun. If the northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun the southern hemisphere would be tilted away. The part tilted towards the sun gets more sunlight and is warmer. The part tilted away wouldn't get as much light and would be colder.

Why are the seasons different in the northern and southern hemispheres?

The Earth is tilted on its axis, and depending on the time of the year, either the northern or southern hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun, while the other half must, of course, be tilted away.

In June, the Northern hemisphere tilts towards the sun. This makes the day longer and the Sun is higher in the sky, giving what sunlight hits the ground more intensity. This is summer.

At the same time, the Southern hemisphere is experiencing winter, with shorter days and the Sun lower in the sky, giving less intense sunlight.

When December comes, the situation is reversed, with winter in the Northern hemisphere and summer in the Southern.

When the sun is rays are shining directly on the northern hemisphere what are they doing in the southern hemisphere?

The Earth is close to a sphere so there is but one single point on the sphere that has the Sun directly overhead at any one time. When this point is in the Northern hemisphere (roughly from the 21 of March to the 20 of September) the Southern hemisphere is less directly hit by the rays of the Sun and experiences somewhat cooler seasons than when the rays of the Sun strike more vertically.
