ROTATION vs. REVOLUTION
**The Earth's Axis is an imaginary line that runs through the Earth from the North Pole to the South Pole and points to the NORTH STAR (POLARIS)..
**The Earth's Axis tilts at a 23.5 degree angle. This TILT gives the Earth's its SEASONS.
**The Earth ROTATES (spins) (1 day) COUNTERCLOCKWISE on this axis once every 24 HOURS
**The Earth also REVOLVES (goes around) the sun in a COUNTERCLOCKWISE direction once every 365 1/4 days (1 year).
