1 Bellwork What sea is located at (15N,75W)?
What three countries fall on the 105W line of longitude? What state is at (45N, 120W)? What country is Northeast of Canada?

2 Agenda Bellwork: Reviewing Map Elements Notes: How Earth Moves
HW: Graphic Organizer If you haven’t made up Quiz 1.1 you need to! Tomorrow: start in class project on Earth’s Movement

3 Earth’s Movement Why are there 365 days in a year?
Earth has the perfect orbit for humans! Gizmo's Birthday

4 How does the Earth move? Revolution: Earth travels on an orbit around the sun Takes 365 1/4th days Earth revolves around the sun, which causes The length of our year Our seasons: as the Earth moves, we get 4 seasons Why do we have 4 seasons?

5 How does the Earth move? Rotation: The Earth spins on its axis every 24 hours Axis = invisible line connecting North and South pole Earth’s axis tilts at 23.5 degrees Earth’s rotation causes day and night Earth turns on its axis

6 How does the Earth move? Tilt: Earth’s axis is tilted at a 23.5 degree angle Causes night and day to be longer or shorter Causes the 4 seasons

7 Graphic Organizer - Practice
Number What is it? What does it do? Rotation Revolution Tilt

8 Tomorrow Hemispheres – North, South Equinox, Solstice

9 Bellwork Get out HW from two nights ago to check
Standard: also have out your Guided Reading Questions from yesterday

10 Agenda Bellwork: Recap and Catch Up
Notes: Earth’s Movements (finish up) Foldable HW: Finish Foldable Honors: Prep for In class project tomorrow Groups of 5, 6 groups 2 Rotation, 2 Revolution, 2 Tilt 1 Posterboard, markers, paper, etc

11 Earth-Sun Relationships
Two Hemispheres Hemi = half Sphere = circle Northern Hemisphere = above equator Southern Hemisphere = below equator As Earth revolves, sun’s energy hits each hemisphere differently = opposite seasons

12 Earth-Sun Relationships
4 seasons (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) As Earth revolves, have different amounts of sun’s energy hitting the area Summer Solstice = June 21st The closest the Earth’s North Pole points toward sun, most energy on Northern Hemisphere Winter Solstice = December 21st The farthest the Earth’s North Pole points toward sun, least energy on Northern Hemisphere

13 Earth-Sun Relationships
Amount of energy received affects temperature and length of day Shortest day on Winter Solstice Longest day on Summer Solstice Equinox = equal energy points (2) Vernal Equinox = March 21 Autumnal Equinox = Sept 22 Equal Day/Night

14 Earth Sun Relationship

15 Agenda Check HW (3rd period: chart) Review solstices and equinoxes
Foldable HW: Finish Foldable Quiz 1.2 on Friday!

16 Foldable 1) Fold 4 sheets of paper and staple
2) Give your foldable a title 3) Label each tab (Rotation, Revolution, Tilt) 4) Inside each tab, explain the movement of the Earth – use vocabulary Rotation: axis Revolution: orbit Tilt: solstices and equinox 5) Draw a picture to explain
