In this unit, students learn that the Earth is always moving. This movement directly
affects our lives on this planet because its daily rotation creates day and night, while
its yearly orbit around the Sun creates the seasons.
Likewise, students are introduced to the concept of the Moon as an orbiting satellite
of the Earth. They observe how its lack of rotation causes its appearance to change
as it goes through monthly phases.
We hope you enjoy it.
