Day and Night Explanation for Kids
We have day and nights on earth because of the Earth's rotation on its axis. Axis is an imaginary line passing through North and South poles of the earth.The Earth takes 24 hours to complete one rotation around its axis.Half the time i.e.for 12 hours one side of the Earth is facing the Sun,in this side there is Day whereas on the other side there is night.
When we look up in the sky during different times of the day, we see that the sun is moving from one direction to the other.It rises in the East in the morning and sets in the west.In reality,the sun is not moving,it is our earth that is rotating around the sun, this rotation causes day and night as explained above.
In this science education video , kids can very well understand the reasons of day and night happening.
