NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Social Science Geography Chapter 3: Motions of Earth

Neo Banner

This chapter would focus on the motions of the earth. We would read about rotations and revolutions. We would also look at the lines on the globe to under the effects of rotations and revolutions on the earth. The chapter also tells us about the different seasons of the earth, and the weather is each of these seasons. What is a leap year? What are the Summer and winter Solstices? What would happen if the earth did not rotate? We would find all the answers to this question in this chapter. The chapter also teaches us about the following points:

  • Movement of the earth on its axis is rotation. It takes the earth 24 hours to complete one rotation.
  • Movement of the earth on its orbit is a revolution. It takes the earth approximately 365 days to complete one revolution.
  • We would study how to locate the orbital plane and the line of illumination of the globe.
  • If the rotation of earth didn't happen, then it would always be warm on one side of the earth, and the other side would always be cold.
  • The chapter also tells us about leap years and how to calculate the next leap year.
  • We also read about the four major seasons on earth – summer, winter, spring, and autumn.
  • These seasons also affect the summer and winter solstices.
  • The chapter ends by telling us about the equinox, i.e., days of the year when the earth experiences equal length of days and nights.
