Anti-clockwise about its axis.


The Earth can rotate anti-clockwise and clockwise about its axis around the Sun depending on where it is viewed from (North or South Pole). However, scientists prefer to see it from the North Pole and part of the reason is that observations done in the past were based on the North Pole. Therefore, the Earth rotates in an anti-clockwise direction around the Sun.
