DescriptionTeach the solar system with Flocabulary's "Confession of a Planet." Revolution, rotation, orbit—the terms could make your head spin, so this song will set you straight on the solar system. We start on planet Earth and explain how the Earth’s rotation creates days and its revolution around the sun creates seasons. After navigating longitude and latitude, we voyage into space and explore the planets in the solar system. And don’t forget about the (comparatively) little guys: meteors, comets and meteorites. The song also introduces gravity, along with Newton’s law of inertia and Kepler’s laws of planetary motion. It’s a song to help you teach the solar system.
