1 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 1 Free Powerpoint Templates W.G.: Map Notes and Exercise by Mrs. Huffer

2 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 2 Latitude: Equator = 0 degrees Parallel lines Up to 90 degrees North or South Equator divides Northern and Southern Hemispheres Run East and West Give North and South direction from Equator

3 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 3 Northern Hemisphere Southern Hemisphere 90 degrees South 90 degrees North Equator 0 degrees

4 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 4 Longitude: Prime Meridian (PM)= 0 degrees Non Parallel (perpendicular) lines called Meridians Up to 180 degrees East and West 180 degrees is the International Date Line (IDL) Prime Meridian divides Eastern and Western Hemispheres Run North and South Give East and West direction from PM

5 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 5 Western Hemisphere Eastern Hemisphere Prime Meridian 0 degrees International Date Line 180 degrees N W E S

6 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 6 Earths Movement: : 1.Revolution: around sun = 365 ¼ days 2.Every 4 years = Leap Year when add the extra day— February 29 3.Rotation on Axis = 1 time per day—Rotates East 4.Atmosphere keeps us from noticing the movement

7 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 7 Seasons: Solstice = Winter/Summer Equinox = Spring/Fall Earth is tilted 23 ½ degrees on its Axis Tropic of Cancer = 23 ½ degrees North Tropic of Capricorn = 23 ½ degrees South Tropic of Cancer Equator Tropic of Capricorn

8 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 8 Exercise: Please tell what direction you would travel to go from point A coordinates to point B coordinates. Take the shortest route—what direction would get you there quickest? A CoordinatesB CoordinatesCardinal/ Intermediate Direction Traveled 0 10 S 15 W 75 E 91 N 147 W 86 S 182 E 33 S, S, 109 W
