6) More than 7 billion people are currently residing on planet earth.
7) Earth Day is observed every year on 22nd April in order to protect the environment.
8) Earth generates a powerful magnetic field due to its rotation and iron core.
9) Only 3% of the earth’s water is freshwater rest 97 percent of water is saline in nature.
10) Earth’s only natural satellite is the moon which revolves around the earth.
1) According to Indian mythology, the name Prithvi is derived from the legend king Maharajah (his Highness) Prithu.

4) Earth is the 5th largest planet in size and is the only planet in the solar system that has life.
5) The planet Earth was formed about 4.54 billion years ago and life started to develop hereafter one billion years of this event.
6) Earth's radius is about 6,371 kilometers and is the fifth largest body in the solar system by size.
7) The Earth is located approximately 150 million kilometers from the Sun and this distance is known as Astronomical Unit.
8) It takes about 8.3 minutes for sunlight to reach the Earth.
9) The Earth completes a circle around the Sun in an elliptical path in 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45.51 seconds, which is called its rotational motion.

7) On the surface of the earth, there are huge mountains, somewhere rugged plateau and fertile plains are found elsewhere.
8) The surface of the Earth constantly changes during time period due to plate tectonics and erosion.
9) Changes at the bottom due to plate tectonics have an effect on weather, rainfall, heat cycle and chemical changes.
10) These changes occur on the surface due to many factors such as freezing, coastal erosion, formation of coral reefs and large meteor bodies falling on the earth.
Earth is the only planet that supports life. Earth gives us all the necessary things like food, water, the shelter needed for the survival of life. Hence, it is our prime responsibility to protect the earth by saving greenery and the environment. We should not waste natural resources in abundance for our own greed. As a human being, we should volunteer for the activities that help in reducing pollution and global warming thereby making it a sustainable planet to live.
