Earth's Rotation and Revolution

From the: Exploring Earth and Space Series

What causes day and night? Why do we have seasons? Through easy-to-understand animations, as well as live-action video footage, these difficult concepts are easily explained. The rotation of Earth on its axis, and its revolution around the sun are the focus of this video. Colorful graphics vividly illustrate the movement of our planet throughout the course of a year. Important terminology includes: axis, tilt, rotation, revolution, orbit, season, solstice, and equinox.

"The graphics and movie clips will enable students to develop a deeper understanding of concepts such as day and night, the year, seasonal changes, solstices, and equinoxes... This set would be an asset for differentiated instruction, high school special education classes, and elementary and middle school classroom teachers." - NSTA Recommends 05/21/2007
