Group A Day And Night

As the Earth rotates on its axis for 24 hours. it causes the Earth to spin. so the side which faces the sun is day as it is closest to the sun. The side that is further away from the sun is night as it has no sun and it is dark. The axis is an imaginary line that runs from the North Pole to the Soulth Pole.

In the morning, the sun appers to rise in the East.In the evening, it appers to sets in the West.But the sun does not move at all.It only seems to mone across the skybecause the Earth is spinning.

When the sun shines on the spinning Earth, only the side of the Earth facing the sun gets light. the other half of the Earthis in shadow.As the Earth spins, the UK moves into the light. This gives us Day and Night.

The moon orbits the Earth once every 28 days to give the phases of the moon.

Somtimes when the Earth is between the sum and the moon, and there is a lunar eclipse.

When the moon blocks the suns light from reaching the Earth, there is a solar eclipse.
