Imagine that the Earth does not rotate but goes around the Sun around the year.

What difference will it make to the seasons and distribution of temperature?

Answer :

The rotation of the Earth around its own axis and the movement of Earth around the sun are responsible for change in seasons and the distribution of temperature. If the Earth did rotate and only revolve around the sun then it would mean that a place would have the same seasons throughout the year. The portions that get more sunshine would keep getting it throughout the year in the same way and the vice-versa.
