What is the Earth?


Earth is a watery planet. More than two-thirds of Earth’s surface is covered with water. That’s good for all the living things in our world because animals and plants need water to live. Animals and plants live almost everywhere on Earth.

Earth is the third planet from the sun, and air surrounds it. The air is made up of gases, such as oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. These gases are needed for almost all living things to survive. Human beings breathe in oxygen. Plants need carbon dioxide.

If you look at a globe, you will find the North Pole on one end and the South Pole on the other. Earth looks like a ball, but it is actually a little flatter at the North and South poles.

Earth travels 958 million kilometres on its journey around the sun. It takes about 365 days for Earth to orbit the sun once. That’s why there are about 365 days in an Earth year.
