The moon compared to Earth

It takes Earth 365.25 days to travel around the sun, and 24 hours for it to rotate.

This is our Solar System. Earth is the third planet from the sun.

The average distance from the sun to Earth is 92,956,050 miles.

This is a view from the moon looking at Earth. If that looks far away, imagine how far it looks from the sun's view.

We don’t exactly know why it was named “Earth”, but it was derived from both English and German words ‘eor(th)e/ertha’ and ‘erde’.

We use this globe to study the places on Earth. We have studied Earth for a long time.

Earth is normally 59 degrees F, which is perfect for living things.

As you can see, living things (humans) have made cities that you can see at a certain distance from Earth.

Earth is 71% water

Earth is the only planet that wasn’t named after a Greek god/goddess. Here is Jupiter and Saturn which are both named after a Greek god/goddess.
