Earth’s Movements In SpaceLandforms-Basic

Tune: Frere Jacques

Earth’s rotation, round its axis,
Spinning round, every day,
Twenty-four hours are,
In just one rotation,
Earth rotates, once each day.

Revolution, Earth moves in space,
‘Round the sun, once each year,
365 days,
In one revolution,
Earth revolves, ‘round the sun.
