By: Gabrielle Hobbs and Jessica Wagner
WHAT IS ROTATION?
You might have wondered all this time what rotation is. Well this will answer all your questions. Well if you don't know already, the rotation of Earth actually causes day and night. Rotation is the Earth spinning as it orbits around the Sun. So when you go to sleep at night or if you wake up in the morning, just remember that Earth is rotating and that is one of the main reasons it is dark at night and light in the daytime.
WHAT IS REVOLUTION?
As you might know, Earth revolves around the Sun. It seems like the Sun revolves around the Earth, but looks can be deceiving. Do you know that Earth's revolution on it's axis is the reason we have seasons. Now that you know, you should know that if the Earth wasn't tilted on an axis we wouldn't have seasons at all! That would mean NO SNOW, OR FUN IN YOUR POOL ALL BECAUSE EARTH WOULD NOT BE TILTED ON IT'S AXIS! So be thankful Earth is tilted on axis.
