Bell Ringer - Quiz Step 1: Draw two circles on your paper.
Step 2: In the first circle, draw and label the equator. Step 3: In the first circle, draw three lines of latitude on both sides of the equator. Step 4: In the second circle, draw and label the Prime Meridian. Step 5: In the second, draw three lines of longitude on both sides of the Prime Meridian.

Use the image below to answer number 2.
2. What continent is located in the: Northern Hemisphere Eastern Hemisphere Southern Hemisphere Western Hemisphere

3. What is the definition of absolute location. 4
3. What is the definition of absolute location? 4. What is the definition of relative location?

Questions 5 -10 – Use your atlas
5. Pg 88 – What is the approximate absolute location of Seward, Alaska? 6. Pg 138 – What is the approximate absolute location of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil? 7. Pg. 154 – What city is located at approximately 38ºN and 24ºE? 8. Pg What city is located at approximately 2ºN and 104ºE? 9. Pg. 154 – Using Paris, France as a reference point, what is the relative location of Naples, Italy? 10. Pg – Using Homs, Syria as a reference point, what is the relative location of Warsaw, Poland?

Questions 11-15 – Use the atlas
11. Pg – How many miles does the scale measure at its fullest? 12. Pg – How far is it from Atlanta, GA to Chicago, IL? 13. Pg. 194 How many kilometers does the scale measure at its fullest? 14. Pg. 194 How many kilometers is it from Karachi, Pakistan to Baghdad, Iraq? 15. Pg.104 – using Denver, CO as a reference point– tell me another city, its absolute location, and its relative location from Denver (three answers)

Types of Maps – Physical and Political
Physical maps show the location and the topography, or shape of the Earth’s physical features. A study of an area’s physical features can help explain its historical development Political maps shows the boundaries and locations of political units such as countries, states, and cities (often divided by color). A study of a political map gives you a context for the region.

Physical Maps Use shading and texture to show general relief (difference in elevation, height, landforms). Landforms are physical features such as plains, mountains, plateaus, and valleys. Show rivers, streams, lakes and other water forms.

Political Maps Many of the items on a political map are human-made, or determined by humans rather than nature. Boundaries, capital cities, and roads. Might also show physical features such as mountains and rivers.

Examples in the Atlas Political Maps Pg. 2-3 Pg. 88 Pg. 228 Physical Maps Pg. 4-5 Pg. 89 Pg. 229 Activity – After looking at the examples, what three words would you use to describe each type of map?

Thematic Maps – maps that provide a particular kind of information or a single idea
Flow-Line maps – use arrows to show the movement of people, ideas, or physical systems. Examples in Atlas: Pg PG Qualitative Maps – use colors, symbols, lines, or dots to show information related to a specific idea. Examples in Atlas: Pg Pg Activity: When would you use a qualitative map? A Flow-Line map? What three words would you use to describe each type of map?
