3. Earthquakes happen more often in California than in Massachusetts. Why? 4. What form of government is it where the executive branch exists separately from a legislature to which it is generally not accountable?

Every location on earth has a global address. The address is in numbers; therefore, people can communicate about location no matter what language they speak. Global address is given as two numbers called “coordinates” The two numbers are a location’s latitude number and longitude number. Latitude and Longitude works with a numbered grid system (like graph paper) however latitude lines and longitude lines curve with the shape of the earth. Location is where the two lines intersect.

23 Latitude Lines of Latitude are horizontal. They are known as “parallels” because they run parallel to the equator. Lines of latitude are a numerical way to measure how far north or south of the equator a place is located. Latitude degrees get larger the further you get from the equator all they way to 90 degrees latitude at the poles. Equator is the starting point so it is marked 0 degrees. Latitude locations are given as ______ degrees north or ______ degrees south.


25 Longitude Lines of longitude are vertical and are known as “meridians”. Longitude is a numerical way to show/measure how far a location is east or west of the Prime Meridian. The Prime Meridian is the starting point so it is labeled at 0 degrees To measure east or west of the Prime Meridian, there are 180 vertical lines of longitude that run east and 180 lines of longitude that run west. The 180 degree line is called the International Date Line and is directly opposite of the Prime Meridian. Longitude locations are given as _____ degrees east or ______ degrees west
