Earth spins around its axis, just as a top spins around its
spindle. This spinning movement is called Earth's
rotation. At the same time that the Earth spins on its
axis, it also orbits, or revolves around the Sun. This
movement is called revolution.

it takes Earth 23.934 hours to complete a rotation on its
axis and 365.26 days to complete an orbit around the
sun. Earth's axis of rotation is tilted in relation to the
ecliptic plane, an imaginary surface through the
planet's orbit around the sun.
