Mrs. Woods’ First Grade SCIENCE The Sun, Moon, and Stars Is the Sun a star? • The Sun is the closest star to Earth. • It makes its own heat and light. • The earth orbits around the sun. • It gives the earth heat and light. The Earth rotates once every 24 hours. Each time the Earth rotates we have one day and one night. When we are on the sun side of the earth, we have daylight. When we rotate away from the sun, we have night. The moon rotates around the Earth. On many nights, we can see it, but it does not make its own light. The Sun lights the moon. The Earth revolves around the Sun. The path it takes is called the Earth’s Orbit. It takes one YEAR to go around the Sun. Groups of stars seem to make shapes in the sky. These are constellations. The earth is wrapped in the air we breathe and surrounded by moist white clouds. Our atmosphere is made up mostly of two gases, Nitrogen and oxygen. All living things need Oxygen to survive. The earth travels around the sun, our source of light and heat. The earth also rotates, or spins during it’s journey. The countries that are turned toward the sun get daylight. This is it, our shining star!
