    1. 1. Amazing Earth
    2. 2. Earth is the third planet from the Sun Can you name all of the planets? Earth is the largest of the 4 inner planets that orbit the sun.
    3. 3. Earth is almost a perfect sphere
    4. 4. One moon orbits the Earth It takes the moon about 28 daysto orbit counterclockwise around the Earth.
    5. 5. The orbit around the sun is elliptical.As the Earth orbits the sun, the moon orbits the Earth.
    6. 6. Earth is tilted 23.5 degrees on its axis Axis - an imaginary line that goes through the center of the earth from the north pole to the south pole.
    7. 7. Earth is a unique planetIt is the only planet in our Solar System that isknown to have liquid water. It can be found inall three states.
    8. 8. Water vs. Land on Earth About 75% About 25%of Earth is covered in water of Earth is land (continents) Water versus Land Land Water
    9. 9. Only a small % of water is available for humans to use and consume

    13. 13. The atmosphere is important to us for many reasons• Provides oxygen which all living things need to live.• Protects us from most harmful UV rays from the sun
    14. 14. The atmosphere is important to us for many reasons• Provides oxygen which all living things need to live• Protects us from most harmful UV rays from the sun• Keeps the Earth at temperatures that aren’t too hot or too cold
    15. 15. The atmosphere is important to us for many reasons• Provides oxygen which all living things need to live.• Protects us from most harmful UV rays from the sun.• Keeps the Earth at temperatures that aren’t too hot or too cold• Protects us from meteorites which usually burn up as they hit the atmosphere
