Lunar System

We drew a picture of what we think the shapes and sizes of the Earth, Moon and Sun are. I used to think that the movement of the Lunar System looked like this…

Now I think the Lunar system moves like this. I think the Moon circles the Earth while the Earth circles the Sun. I’m not sure if this is true or not but I am excited to find out!!

How do you think the Lunar system moves and why?
