A rotation is when the earth spins.It takes 24 hours to rotate

fully one time. The side facing the sun is in daylight, the side

facing away is in night. An interesting fact is that in order for

us to experience 365 days in a year, the Earth has to rotate 366

times as it revolves around the sun in that year. Rotation is a

circular motion, to go around.
