Hi, I'm Ritta H.
What I learned about revolution is that I always thought we got closer to the sun when it was summer and that is why it was warm - but it's not! The Earth is titled at a 23.5 degree angle and as it revolves around the sun it points toward the sun and gets more direct sunlight, and that's what causes summer.

Hi Ritta, I'm Justin T.
I always thought it was that we were closer, too. I asked my parents why they thought we had seasons and they thought it was because we were closer to the sun in the summer!! It was fun to tell them they were wrong and then explain the real reason!
