4 - Phases, Eclipses, and Tides Tides (packet p. 11)Tides occur mainly due to the difference in the force of gravity between the moon and different parts of Earth. ;
5 Spring and Neap Tides- Phases, Eclipses, and TidesWhen Earth, the sun, and the moon are in a straight line, a spring tide occurs. When the moon is at a right angle to the sun, a neap tide occurs.Full and New moonsSite 1:Site 2:First and Third quarter

11 That is why we DO NOT have an eclipse EVERY full moon or new moon!! - Phases, Eclipses, and TidesThe Moon’s OrbitThe moon’s orbit is tilted about 5 degrees relative to Earth’s orbit around the sun.That is why we DO NOT have an eclipse EVERY full moon or new moon!!
13 - Phases, Eclipses, and Tides Motions of the MoonThe changing relative positions of the moon, Earth, and sun cause the phases of the moon, eclipses, and tides.

21 - Gravity and MotionGravityThe strength of the force of gravity between two objects depends on two factors: the masses of the objects and the distance between them.
22 - Gravity and MotionGravity and InertiaNewton concluded that two factors–gravity and inertia– combine to keep the moon in orbit around Earth.
23 Asking Questions Question Answer - Gravity and MotionAsking QuestionsQuestionAnswerGravity is the force that attracts all objects toward one another.What is gravity?Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist a change in motion.What is inertia?

26 Gravity and Motion (p. 14)The force of gravity on an object is known as its weight.All objects in the universe are attracted to all other objects. The Earth and Moon are large objects and therefore have a large gravitational pull.Once the ball is set into motion, it will continue to move at same speed and directions unless acted upon by an outside force (friction).The greater the distance between objects the less the force of gravity.
27 Gravity and Motion (p.14) A push or pull. Force that attracts all objects to each other.Every object in the universe attracts every other object.The amount of matter in an object.The force of gravity on an object (combined with the object’s mass).The tendency of an object to resist a change in motion.An object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion with a constant speed and direction unless acted on by a force.
29 Rotation/Revolution and Seasons Use the following PowerPoint, along with your textbook, to take notes on p. 1 (Rotation vs. Revolution) and p. 3 (Seasons) of your packet.The PowerPoint contains many links to informational websites. Some of these have sound (like BrainPOP) and some are simply animations. Please investigate the websites fully as you take notes.
30 How Earth Moves- Earth in SpaceEarth moves through space in two major ways: rotation and revolution. (p. 15)
31 Rotation Earth’s spinning on its axis. Axis – imaginary line that passes through Earth’s center and the N and S poles.One rotation is just under 24 hrs.Rotation causes day and night on Earth.
32 Revolution The movement of one object around another. Orbit – the Earth’s path as it revolves around the Sun.One revolution is days.Earth revolving around the Sun causes seasons.Site 1:Video 1:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-oLJxjCzBg
33 Sunlight Striking Earth’s Surface - Earth in SpaceNear the equator, sunlight strikes Earth’s surface more directly and is less spread out than near the poles. (p. 18)North PoleArctic CircleTropic of CancerEquatorTropic of CapricornAntarctic CircleSouth Pole
34 Seasons on Earth- Earth in SpaceEarth has seasons because it is tilted on its axis as it revolves around the sun. (p )Site 1:Site 2: (sound)Site 3: (sound)Username: password: sealsSite 4:

36 Review – QUIZ on Wednesday 12-10-14 Please complete p. 4 in your packet ‘Earth in Space’ as a review of this material.Thanks!!On the following pages are a review of the notes from p. 3 and answer key to p. 4
37 Seasons – we live in the NORTHERN Hemisphere! Caused by:The TILT of the EarthThe REVOLUTION of the Earth around the Sun.When it is one season in the Northern Hemisphere, it is the ‘opposite’ season in the Southern Hemisphere.Summer – WinterFall - Spring
38 Summer!The Northern Hemisphere is tilted TOWARD the Sun; Southern Hemisphere is tilted AWAY (winter for them!!)The Sun’s rays are directly over the Tropic of Cancer (23.5⁰N latitude).Longer days and shorter nights for us in N. HemisphereArtic Circle (North pole) has 24 hrs. of daylight; Antarctic Circle (South pole) has 24 hrs. of darkness.
39 Winter!The Northern Hemisphere is tilted AWAY from the Sun; Southern Hemisphere is tilted TOWARD (summer for them!!).The Sun’s rays are directly over the Tropic of Capricorn (23.5⁰S latitude).Shorter days and longer nights for us in N. HemisphereArtic Circle (North pole) has 24 hrs. of darkness; Antarctic Circle (South pole) has 24 hrs. of daylight.
40 Spring and Fall Equinox – mean ‘equal night’ Both N. and S. Hemispheres receive same amount of the Sun’s energy! (neutral ‘tilt’ of Earth in relation to Sun)The Sun’s rays are directly over the Equator (0⁰ latitude)There are 12 hrs. of daylight and 12 hrs. of darkness in both Hemispheres.
