7th Grade- Thursday, December 5th

Due tomorrow (Friday): Page 3 and 4 in your Earth’s Rotation and Revolution notebook.

Observing phenomenon. Phenomenon: The sun appears to move across the sky during the day, and the stars appear to move across the sky during the night.

For 25 house points. True or false? Can you use the stars to navigate?

For 25 more house points, what is the difference between rotation and revolution?




Fun fact: A year on Earth isn’t 365 days
It’s actually 365.2564 days. It’s this extra .2564 days that creates the need for leap years. That’s why we tack on an extra day in February every year divisible by 4 – 2004, 2008, etc – unless it’s divisible by 100 (1900, 2100, etc)… unless it’s divisible by 400 (1600, 2000, etc).
