RATIONALE

The earth is the third planet from the sun. It is the only place with different kinds of lives. There are two movements of the earth – rotation and revolution. Earth’s rotation is completed in every 24 hours causing day and night. While earth’s revolution is completed in every 365 days – one year bringing about different seasons at different places at different time.

The concept of earth’s movements will enable the pupils to understand the causes of day and night and appreciate different seasons of the year.
