Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The earth is spinning on an_____.

    Explanation
    The Earth is spinning on an axis, which is an imaginary line that runs through the center of the Earth from the North Pole to the South Pole. This axis is tilted at an angle of approximately 23.5 degrees relative to the plane of its orbit around the Sun. This rotation of the Earth on its axis is what causes day and night, as different parts of the Earth are exposed to the Sun's light at different times. The axis also plays a role in the changing of seasons, as the tilt causes the Sun's rays to hit different parts of the Earth more directly at different times of the year.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The earth does a complete rotation or spin in one______.

    Explanation
    The question is asking how long it takes for the Earth to complete one rotation or spin. The correct answer is "day" because it takes approximately 24 hours for the Earth to complete one full rotation on its axis. This rotation is what causes the cycle of day and night on Earth.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    It takes one _____ for the earth to travel around the sun. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "year" because a year is defined as the time it takes for the Earth to complete one orbit around the Sun. This is approximately 365.25 days, which accounts for the leap year every four years.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The path of the earth around the sun is called an_____.

    Explanation
    The path of the earth around the sun is called an orbit. An orbit is the curved path followed by an object, such as a planet or satellite, as it revolves around another object under the influence of gravity. In the case of the earth, it revolves around the sun in a nearly circular orbit, completing one revolution in approximately 365.25 days, resulting in the length of a year.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When the earth is to the left of the sun the ___________ hemisphere is getting more direct sun

    Explanation
    When the earth is to the left of the sun, it means that the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun. This tilt causes the northern hemisphere to receive more direct sunlight, resulting in warmer temperatures and longer days. Therefore, the correct answer is "northern."

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When the earth is on the right side of the sun, it is summer in the ________ hemisphere. 

    Explanation
    When the Earth is on the right side of the sun, it is summer in the southern hemisphere. This is because the Earth's axis is tilted, causing different parts of the Earth to receive varying amounts of sunlight throughout the year. When the southern hemisphere is tilted towards the sun, it experiences more direct sunlight and longer days, resulting in warmer temperatures and summer season.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The moon goes through changes in appearance that we call _____.

    Explanation
    The moon goes through changes in appearance that we call phases. These phases are a result of the moon's position relative to the sun and Earth. As the moon orbits around the Earth, different portions of its illuminated side become visible to us on Earth, creating the different phases such as new moon, crescent, half moon, and full moon. These phases occur in a regular cycle, taking approximately 29.5 days to complete.

    Rate this question:
