9 Construct a paper ruler: Place a strip of paper alongthe scale line.Make a pencil mark at the 0,100 km and 200 km points.Place the 200 km mark you have just made at 0 on the line scale and mark off another 200 km in 100 km intervals.Continue making marks until your ruler is long enough.Be sure to label your marks!
10 Using your paper ruler, answer the following questions.
11 Find the distance between St. John’s and Port aux Basques. 500 kms
12 Find the distance between Fredericton and Halifax. 300 kms
13 Find the distance between Gander and Charlottetown. 700 kms
14 Find the distance between St. John’s and Fredericton. 1100 kms
15 Find the distance Charlottetown and Port aux Basques. 350 kms
23 Time distance:The time it takes to get between two points
24 How would you know what time it was in other parts of the world if every community measured their own time?
25 Sir Sanford FlemingCanadian surveyor, cartographer, engineer, inventor, and scientist.Designed Canada’s first postage stampSuggested the globe be divided into 24 zones after missing a train in Ireland.
29 Lines of longitude are used to mark time zones.
30 Each time zone is 15° wide, the distance the sun travels in one hour.
31 The Prime Meridian, which passes through Greenwich, England, is the 0° longitude location or starting point where time zones are measured east and west of that line.The Prime Meridian – the starting line for time zones
32 Time zones to the East of the Prime Meridian are one hour ahead, and time zones to the West of the Prime Meridian are one hour behind.
34 At 180° longitude, you will find the International Date Line At 180° longitude, you will find the International Date Line. The time is the same on both sides of this line, but the day is different.December 25thDecember 24th
35 As we travel east over this line, we "lose a day." As we travel west over the IDL, it is one day later.
36 A time zone map tells you the time in different parts of the word A time zone map tells you the time in different parts of the word. Canada has a total of six time zones:Newfoundland Standard Time (NST) 3 1/2 hours from GreenwichAtlantic Standard Time (AST) 4 hours from GreenwichEastern Standard Time (EST) 5 hours from GreenwichCentral Standard Time (CST) 6 hours from GreenwichMountain Standard Time (MST) 7 hours from GreenwichPacific Standard Time (PST) 8 hours from Greenwich
