Intro

The Earth is about 4.6 billion years old. It is made mostly of water so coming in it will be mostly blue with green and brown land as well as white clouds that will be visible from space. The planet is about 12,750 km in diameter and has one significant moon. The Earth is tilted on an axis and that is what gives us seasons. Some parts of the Earth are tilted more to the sun at times and that gives us seasons.

About Earth

The Earth rotates around its axis. One rotation is the equivalent to one day. The Earth also revolves around the sun. One revolution is equal to one year. Earth's energy and heat comes from the sun and is then turned into electricity. Earth, stars, and other planets are spherical because it is the lowest energy state that a group of matter can be in. A light year is the distance light can travel over the span of one year. It is about 6 trillion miles. Gravity is what created the solar system and it is what keeps people from flying off of the Earth.

Activities

When coming to Earth there is so much to do. You can go to the ocean and swim or surf, go hiking, or go to a fun amusement park. These are just some of the many experiences you can have on Earth. The temperatures vary greatly so pack summer and winter outfits depending on where you will be staying. There is so much to do and see that you couldn't see it all in 100 years.
