Sing the following to the "Row-Row-Row your Boat" tune:

Ro-Ro-Rotation,

For 24 Hours, each day.

The Earth Spins on its axis

This will make one day.

Rev-Rev-Revolution,

The Earth goes 'round the sun.

365 days in all,

Until a year is done.

In class:

 

  • Rotation/Revolution Dance- You will be working with the people sitting at your table.  Your group will have 5 minutes to come up with a "dance" to demonstrate rotation and revolution.   

 

  • Whole group instruction - Actively participate in class discussion/presentation of how Earth rotates and revolves and how those two motions affect changes in daylight and seasons. Details of what you will be doing will be given during class.
