EARTH ART FOR EARTH DAY
EARTH FACTSThe name “Earth” for our planet comes from both English and German words, ‘ertha’ and ‘erde’, which means ground. But the person or people who named the planet is unknown! It is believed that the Earth formed over 4.5 billion years ago. During the first billion years, life appeared in the oceans. Since then, the combination of Earth’s distance from the Sun and its physical properties has allowed life to evolve and thrive.
Earth is the third planet from the Sun and the only planet known to sustain life. About 1/3 of Earth’s surface is land consisting of continents and islands. The other 2/3 is water, mostly oceans, seas, gulfs but also by lakes, rivers, and other freshwater. The Earth’s polar regions are covered in ice.
