Earth, Sun, Moon

rotation the spinning of the Earth on it's axis
axis the imaginary line that goes through the north and south poles that the earth spins on
waxing when the lit part of the moon increases
orbit the pathway the earth takes around the sun
revolution the orbiting of the earth around the sun causing the seasons to change
waning when the lit part of the moon decreases
solar system all of the planets, moon, and other space objects going around the sun
sun center of our solar system provides heat, light, and helps plants grow
solar energy energy created by the sun
What is the sun? the sun is a star
In the winter time, the sun seems to be low in the sky because... the earth is tilted away from the sun
The moon goes through several phases as it... goes around the Earth
How does the moon get its light? It reflects the sun’s light onto the earth.
The Earth is always spinning on its axis. Why do we not feel this spinning movement? We do not feel the movement because it is a smooth and constant movement at the same speed and same direction. Also, we are moving at the same speed.
Explain why the moon appears to be a smaller size on some nights and bigger on other nights. The moon appears to be different sizes depending on how much light from the sun is reflecting from the moon. The bigger the moon that we see, the more light the moon is getting from the sun.
