Space Grades 3-5
Solar System The Sun and the 8 planets that revolve around it.
Planet Sphere made of rocks and gases Terrestrial/Inner PlanetsGas Giants/Outer Planets
Position Where an object is located in space.
Sphere A circular/round three dimensional ball
Orbit The path an object takes in space.
Compass An instrument that uses a small magnet to show which direction is North (N)
Sundial Instrument that measures the time of day by using the position of the Sun
Shadow A dark area caused when an object blocks light falling on the surface of Earth
Rotation Earth spins on its axis causing day and night in a 24 hour time period (1 Day)
Axis An imaginary line Earth spins on; Earth spins on a 24.5 degree tilt
Day When Earth faces the Sun and is lighted
Night The time during rotation when Earth does not face the Sun
Rotation causes the Sun to appear as if it moves across the sky. Is it? No! Rotation makes it look like it is! The Sun is NOT moving across the sky. The Earth is moving (rotating)! Tricky!!
Revolution One complete orbit of the Earth around the Sun or the Moon around Earth
Moon A natural satellite that orbits a planet
Craters Bowl shaped indents that are caused with a collision with another object such as a meteorite
Mass The amount of matter in an object
Weight The force of gravity on an object (how hard gravity is pulling on you)
Gravity A natural force that causes two objects to pull toward each other depending on their mass and the distance between them
Which changes? Which stays the same?
Earth A planet in the solar system that has life
Tide The rise and fall of water in the ocean caused by the moon’s gravitational pull
High Tide and Low Tide
Moon Phase/Lunar Phase What the moon looks like at different times of the month
CHAPTER 17 EARTHS CYCLES. Lesson 1 – How does Earth move? Earth spins like a top as it circles around and around the Sun. Earth is tipped to one side.
Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…. Actually, the galaxy isnt that far away. In fact, we live in it. Its called the Milky Way. The Milky Way is a spiral.
Practice Questions What motion of Earth causes day and night? Rotation What causes seasons to change? Earths revolution changes how energy from the Sun.
