Line that run east to west, but measure north to south
Lines that run north to south but measure east to west
Zero degrees (0°) latitude – divides the earth into northern and southern hemispheres
Zero degrees (0°) longitude - divides the earth into western and eastern hemispheres.
Half of the earth
Weather in a place over a long period of time
23 ½ degrees N latitude – tropical zone north of equator ◦ (OPEN THE CAN ON TOP) ◦ most northerly circle of latitude on the Earth at which the Sun may appear directly overhead at its culmination
23 ½ degrees S latitude –tropical zone below the equator; southern border of the tropics
Imaginary line of latitude, approximately 66˚N; marks the beginning of North Polar region
Imaginary line of latitude, southern hemisphere; comparable to Arctic Circle.
180˚ line of longitude; where days begin ◦ Directly opposite of the Prime Meridian
24 time zones – 24 hours in a day; time zones are based on lines of longitude
Run east to west-called latitude lines ◦ Never going to touch (geometry)
Run north and south-called longitude lines ◦ Touch at the poles

Directions Compass Rose – a symbol that shows a direction on a map. Cardinal Directions – north, south, east, west North Pole – the point farthest north.
A place can be either in the NORTHERN or SOUTHERN hemisphere. That means it is in one of the halves above or below the imaginary east-west line known.
Measuring Latitude and Longitude. Parallels of Latitude Imaginary lines that remain at an equal distance from each other Labeled in degrees North or South.
