Earth by BaoVy & Francesca
Transcript of Earth by BaoVy & Francesca
Earth is an ocean planet. Our home's
abundance with water, oxygen, and life, makes
it very unique. This terrestrial planet is the
fourth planet away from the sun, and the densest
planet in the Solar System. We've discovered past
evidence of water on Mars. But, for now, Earth is the
only planet known to have life.
Also known as, Lunar, in Latin
Stabilizes Earth`s rotation, keeping us from drastic movements of the poles that could make changes to the Earth`s climate.
This is our only natural satellite.
Age: 4.527 billion years
Circumference/Width: 6,784 miles
The distance from Earth to the moon is 238,900 miles.
It takes the moon approximately 27 days to rotate on its axis.
Earth is 4.54 billion years old
It takes 24 hours for Earth to rotate on it's axis
Earths` Size and Weight
Diameter: 7,926 Miles
Earth`s average distance is 92,955,820 miles
Estimated weight 13,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 pounds (thirteen septillion pounds)
Largest of the Terrestrial Planets
The densest of the Terrestrial Planets
Earth provides all 4 seasons. The effect on earth's revolution and its tilt provides 4 seasons named
, all depending on which way Earth is facing towards the sun.
Right before summer, and after winter
Vegetation starts appearing
Sun rises earlier than Winter
Ice and snow from Winter melt and disappears
The coldest season of the year
Weather is colder
Sun rises later than summer
A different form of precipitation: snow
Birds are migrating south for warmer weather
Wettest season of the year
Leaves fall from trees
Birds and animals are preparing for winter
Most crops are picked or ripened and eaten or saved for Winter
The whole summer months in the Southern Hemisphere are December, January, and February, and the whole months of June, July, and August in the Northern Hemisphere.
Known as Earth's twin
Planet closest in size to Earth
Both plants are terrestrial planets
Made up of mostly rocks
Almost about the same mass.
They both have volcanoes, mountains, and craters.
It contains rocks, volcanoes, valleys, deserts and polar ice caps similar to Earth
The planet experiences all four seasons that the Earth does, including Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
Planets and Moon similar to Earth
Both have different types of gases, such as nitrogen, methane and carbon dioxide.
Both have ice geysers and frozen water.
It is possible that a liquid ocean formed between the rocky core and icy surface shell.
The interior of Triton may have been warm enough at one time to contain a liquid layer just under the surface.
earth is 92.9 million miles from the sun
Summer is the warmest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn.
The days are longest and the nights are shortest
The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture
Surprisingly, while it is only the fifth largest planet in terms of size and mass, it is the densest of all the planets.
Earth is the only planet in the solar system not named after a mythological being. Instead, its name is derived from the Old English word "ertha" and the Anglo-Saxon word "erda" which means ground or soil.
Earth has 97% salted water and 3% fresh water
Antarctica has as much ice as earth has water
The Earth’s rotation is gradually slowing
1 million earths can fit in the sun
The Moon controls the Earth's tides
through it's gravity.
Energy from the Sun is very important to Earth. The Sun provides daylight, and with the tilt of the Earth`s axis we have the seasons summer, autumn, winter and spring. The sun also heats up the oceans and lakes, so it is a big part of the water cycle.
Earth's astronomical symbol is simply a circle
based on the Sun's solar symbol (meaning
"seed with potential"). But, unlike the Sun,
Earth has 4 lines instead of the "seed" (dot)
represents 4 seasons in cardinal directions in a year.⊕

We worked together
to make this project good!
Stabilize: make or become unlikely to give away or overturn
