Earth is about 92,960,000 mi. from the sun.
When the Earth spins we say it
rotates. The Earth
makes one complete rotation ( turn
) every 24 hours.
What makes night and day?
Well, the spinning of the Earth
makes night and day.
When one side of the Earth
faces the sun it is day time
on that side. When that side turns
away from the sun it is night.
The layers of air , around
the Earth is called the atmosphere.
