Slide 2:

Sun, earth and moon The sun , earth and moon form a system within our solar system

Slide 3:


Slide 4:

THE SUN The sun is a great big ball of burning gases The sun is the star in the middle of our solar system

Slide 5:

Solar system SUN The sun is the closest star to our planet earth The sun is over 90 million miles away from earth

Slide 6:

THE SUN The diameter is the sun is about 865,000 miles. The sun makes up 99.9% of the solar systems mass

Slide 7:

THE SUN The sun is mostly made up of the gases hydrogen and helium

Slide 8:

Layers of the sun Core Sunspot

Slide 9:

Layers of the sun Core Sunspot The photosphere is the layer where the sunlight we see comes from

Slide 10:

Layers of the sun Core Sunspot The chromosphere has a red color because of the presence of hydrogen gas

Slide 11:

Layers of the sun Core Sunspot The sunspots are dark spot on the photosphere.

Slide 12:

Layers of the sun Core Sunspot The sunspots have cooler temperatures than other parts of the sun

Slide 13:

Layers of the sun Core Sunspot Scientists can figure out the temperature of the sun from its color

Slide 14:

Layers of the sun Core Sunspot The core (center) of the earth is about 15 million˚C The surface of the sun is about 5,500˚C

Slide 15:

THE SUN SUN Scientists believe the sun is about 4.6 billion years old They believe the sun will burn for about 5 million more years and then die

Slide 16:

IMPORTANCE OF THE SUN Without the sun, there would be no life on earth Heat from the sun warms the earth

Slide 17:

IMPORTANCE OF THE SUN Plants use the sun’s energy to produce their own food by photosynthesis Animals eat the plants to get food they need to live and grow

Slide 21:

EARTH The Blue Planet

Slide 22:

EARTH The Blue Planet The earth is about 1 million times smaller than the sun Earth is the only planet that has the right temperature, atmosphere and water for life to exist

Slide 23:

Earth is shaped like a sphere

Slide 24:

The water and the earth’s oceans form the hydrosphere

Slide 25:

Earth is shaped like a sphere The atmosphere refers to all the gases that surround the earth THE ATMOSPHERE

Slide 26:

The solid rock and soil that cover the earth’s surface is called the lithosphere lithosphere

Slide 27:

Layers of the earth

Slide 28:

The earth is made up of three main layers: crust, mantle and the core Layers of the earth

Slide 29:

The crust is the rocky outer layer of the earth . It is made up of a very thin layer of soil over rock CRUST

Slide 30:

Earth is shaped like a sphere crust The crust is the part of the earth we live on

Slide 31:

CRUST There are two types of crusts : continental crust and oceanic crust

Slide 32:

Continental crust The continental crust is the part of the crust above the oceans

Slide 33:

Continental crust

Slide 34:

oceanic crust The oceanic crust is the part of the crust at the bottom of the ocean

Slide 35:

CRUST Mantle MANTLE The MANTLE is a thick layer of hot solid rock found below the crust

Slide 36:

CRUST Mantle MANTLE The MANTLE is about 2900 km thick and is the thickest of all the earth’s layers The temperature of the mantle is about 2200 o C

Slide 37:

CRUST Mantle MANTLE The rocks in part of the mantle, flow very very slowly

Slide 38:

MANTLE The crust and mantle have areas of molten (melted) rock called magma Magma on the surface is called lava

Slide 39:

EARTH The Blue Planet CORE Core The core is the center of the earth. The core is made mostly of two metals —iron and nickel

Slide 40:

CORE The core has two layers—the inner core and outer core Outer core Inner core

Slide 41:

The outer core is made of liquid metals that flow slowly. It is about 2200 km thick OUTER CORE

Slide 42:

The inner core is an area of solid metal at the center of the earth INNER CORE This part is about 1,250 km thick

Slide 43:

INNER CORE The inner core is the earth’s hottest part. Its temperature is about 5,000 o C Inner Core

Slide 48:

LANDFORMS Landforms are natural shapes or features of Earth’s surface Earth has high places and low places, rough places and smooth places.

Slide 49:

LANDFORMS Some landforms are found both on dry land and on the ocean floor

Slide 50:

mountains Mountains form when the tectonic plates that make up Earth’s crust push upwards, fold or crack. Mountain Everest

Slide 51:

Tall mountains rise above the land on each continent The ocean floor also has mountains Mountain McKinley mountains

Slide 52:

hills Hills are raised parts of Earth’s surface that are smaller than mountains Hills usually have sloping sides and rounded tops

Slide 53:

A dune is a hill or a ridge made of sand. Dunes are shaped by the wind, and change all the time dunes

Slide 54:

plateau A plateau is a large, flat area of land that is higher than the surrounding land


Canyons A canyon is a deep valley with very steep sides - often carved from the Earth by a river (moving water) The Grand Canyon in Arizona plateau

Slide 56:

valley A valley is a low place or land between two mountains

Slide 57:

valley These valleys are formed as the river wore away solid rock Rivers run through most valleys

Slide 58:

The Grand Canyon in Arizona A canyon is a deep valley with very steep sides - often carved from the Earth by a river (moving water) canyon

Slide 59:

Steep sides canyon Deep valley

Slide 60:

Plains are large flat areas of land. Plains are typically covered in tall or short grasses PLAINS

Slide 61:

An island is a piece of land surrounded by water ISLAND

Slide 64:

The earth rotates or spins on its axis in a counterclockwise direction The earth completes one rotation in 24 hours (1 day) ROTATION

Slide 65:

Earth and the sun night Day The rotation of the earth on its axis causes day and night

Slide 66:

Soar system night Day The part of the earth facing the sun has daytime and the other side has night time ROTATION

Slide 67:

Soar system night Day As the earth rotates , the side that had daytime will now have nighttime and the side that had nighttime would now have daytime ROTATION

Slide 69:

Solar system The earth is also tilted on its axis

Slide 70:

EARTH’S TILT Summer (more sunlight) Winter The hemisphere tiled towards the sun gets more sunlight (hotter) than the side tilted away from the sun(colder)

Slide 71:

The tilt of the earth on its axis as it moves around the sun, causes the seasons

Slide 72:

Slide 83:

+ An artificial satellite is made by human beings and moves around a planet Hubble space Telescope

Slide 84:


Slide 85:

The moon’s surface is covered with rocks and dust. There are plains, mountains and valleys. MOON

Slide 86:

Because the moon has NO ATMOSPHERE , it has a lot of craters on its surface MOON

Slide 87:

The moon has no air. MOON

Slide 88:

Slide 95:

The moon is earth’s closest neighbor in space

Slide 96:

The moon rotates on its axis as it revolves around the earth MOON

Slide 97:

It takes the moon the same amount of time to rotate and revolves around the earth MOON

Slide 98:

It takes the moon 28 days (1 month) to rotate and revolve around the earth MOON

Slide 99:

Because of this, the same side of the moon always faces the earth

TIDES Earth and the moon

Slide 102:

Earth and the moon If you visit the beach, you’ll notice that at certain times, the water is higher on the beach but at other times, it is lower. TIDES

Slide 103:

What you are seeing are high tides and low tides High tides Low tides

Slide 104:

Tides are caused mostly by the pull of gravity between earth and its moon Hide Tide TIDES

Slide 105:

Each day, the beach will have 2 high tides and 2 low tides low Tide

Slide 106:

TIDES High tides High tides Low tides Low tides

Slide 107:

There are six hours between each tide TIDES

Slide 108:

The highest tide occurs when the earth, moon an sun are lined up TIDES

Slide 110:

THE POSITION OF THE SUN, MOON AND EARTH Sun Earth Moon The sun, earth and moon form a system within our solar system

Slide 111:


Slide 112:

THE MOON We are able to see the moon at night because it reflects the sun’s light

Slide 113:

From night to night, the shape of the moon looks different The changing views of the moon as it moves around the earth is called the moon’s phases

Slide 114:

The moon is not really changing its shape, what changes is the part of the moon that reflects light from the sun to earth LUNAR CYCLE

Slide 115:


Slide 116:

The moon has four main phases as it moves around the sun—the new moon , first quarter , full moon and third quarter LUNAR CYCLE

Slide 117:

MOON PHASES Full Moon New Moon Third Quarter Moon First Quarter Moon

Slide 118:

NEW MOON Moon is directly between the Earth and the Sun. The side of the Moon facing the Earth is dark.

Slide 119:

Moon is a quarter of its way around its orbit. We see half the lighted half of the moon. FIRST QUARTER MOON

Slide 120:

FULL MOON During the full moon, the moon looks like a full circle

Slide 121:

FULL MOON Moon is on the opposite side of Earth from the Sun and the entire side of the moon facing Earth reflects sunlight back to Earth

Slide 122:

THIRD QUARTER MOON Moon is three-quarters of its way around its orbit. We see half the lighted part of the moon.

Slide 124:

Between the four main phases , there are other phases where the moon shape is waxing (getting bigger) or waning (getting smaller) LUNAR CYCLE

Slide 125:

WAXING Waxing means getting BIGGER

Slide 126:

WANING Waning means getting smaller

Slide 127:

Waxing Waning

Slide 128:

During these other phases, the moon’s shape could either appear as a crescent or a gibbous Gibbous moon Crescent moon

Slide 129:

WAXING Waxing Crescent Waxing Gibbous

Slide 130:

WANING Waning Crescent Waning Gibbous

Slide 132:

One complete lunar cycle takes about 29½ days
