Simply by observing the position of celestial objects such as the sun & stars ! If the Earth didn't rotate, the sun would be in exactly the same position each day, and the side of the planet away from the sun would be frozen ! Additionally, if the earth wasn't rotating, the stars would be in exactly the same places in the night-sky !
