Earth fun facts!

Us humans regionalize the earth in many different ways, here are 3: By time, countries, and by states. We regionalize time so no one gets up in darkness or in broad daylight (many places have different times), we regionalize the earth by countries and states so we are organized and don't have names of countries and states all over the place. (For example you can stay organized by alphabetizing the names of states and countries.)
