1 JOURNAL #3 Absolute location – a unique or exact position of something on the Earth’s surface Relative location – a position on the Earth’s surface relative to other locations Grid – a pattern of regularly spaced horizontal and vertical lines Patent – the exclusive right to make or sell an invention When you are done with these definitions get out your notes packet and do question #1

2 ANNOUNCEMENTS Your states/capitals and physical features maps are due TOMORROW! Remember to bring back your green 2 nd Chance sheets

3 G-2 MAPPING

4 "Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety- nine percent perspiration.“ Thomas Edison QUOTE OF THE DAY

5 THOMAS EDISON (1847 – 1931) Married 16 year old Mary Stillwell in 1871 Married 20 year old Mina Miller in 1886 Awarded more than 1,000 patents Invented the phonograph, practical electric lighting, and the kinetoscope – Bright idea while in Wyoming – Someone knocked a bamboo fishing pole into the campfire – Edison put bamboo filaments into his light bulbs for many years “War of Currents” vs. Nikola Tesla – AC vs. DC

6 GEOGRAPHY WRITING PROMPT Draw a map of a place that you are familiar with, include a compass rose and label at least 3 important features of your place

7 BONUS QUESTIONS What are the two branches of geography? What ocean borders the East Coast of the United States? What are the five themes of geography? What country has a larger population the United States or China?

8 HOW DO WE ORGANIZE THE GLOBE? Lines running east-west and north-south circle the globe and create a grid Lines of latitude are called parallels Lines of longitude are called meridians

9 LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE Latitude and longitude are measured in degrees Latitude is measured in degrees from the equator Longitude is measured in degrees from the prime meridian

10 OTHER WAYS TO ORGANIZE THE GLOBE Hemispheres Continents

11 THE SEVEN CONTINENTS

12 MAKING MAPS Projections are used to show the round Earth on a flat map. Can you think of any problems that this might create? (hint: look at Greenland and Antarctica on the projection below)

13 OTHER MAP ELEMENTS Distance Scales Compass Rose Legend Inset maps

14 TYPES OF MAPS Climate Maps

15 TYPES OF MAPS Precipitation Maps Population Maps Economic Maps Elevation Profiles Topographic Maps

16 CLIMATE GRAPHS Climate graphs show the average temperature and the average precipitation of a specific place

17 POPULATION PYRAMIDS

18 MAPS OF THE UNITED STATES

19 WHERE IS THE UNITED STATES ON A WORLD MAP?

20 WHERE IS THE U.S. ON A WORLD MAP? Absolute location: Between 24 and 49 degrees N latitude Between 66 and 125 degrees W longitude The U.S is in the Northern and Western Hemispheres The U.S. is on the continent of North America Relative location: The U.S. is between Canada and Mexico

21 A CLIMATE MAP OF THE UNITED STATES

22 AN ELEVATION MAP OF THE UNITED STATES

23 CLIMATE GRAPHS – DO THE LAST QUESTION ON G-2 BEFORE CLASS
