Slide1Free Powerpoint TemplatesPage 1 Free Powerpoint Templates W.G.:  Map Notes and Exercise by Mrs. Huffer

Slide2Free Powerpoint TemplatesPage 2 Latitude: • Equator  =  0  degrees • Parallel  lines • Up  to  90  degrees  North  or South • Equator  divides  Northern  and Southern  Hemispheres • Run  East  and  West • Give  North  and  South  direction             from  Equator

Slide3Free Powerpoint TemplatesPage 3 Northern Hemisphere Southern Hemisphere 90 degrees South 90 degrees North Equator  0 degrees

Slide4Free Powerpoint TemplatesPage 4 Longitude: • Prime  Meridian  (PM)=  0  degrees • Non  Parallel  (perpendicular)  lines called  Meridians • Up  to  180  degrees  East  and  West • 180  degrees  is  the  International Date  Line  (IDL) • Prime  Meridian  divides  Eastern  and Western  Hemispheres • Run  North  and  South • Give  East  and  West  direction  from                PM

Slide6Free Powerpoint TemplatesPage 6 Earths Movement: : 1. Revolution :  around sun = 365 ¼ days 2. Every 4 years = Leap Year when add the extra day— February 29 3. Rotation  on Axis = 1 time per day—Rotates East 4. Atmosphere keeps us from noticing the movement

Slide7Free Powerpoint TemplatesPage 7 Seasons: • Solstice  = Winter/Summer • Equinox  = Spring/Fall • Earth is tilted 23 ½ degrees on its Axis • Tropic of Cancer = 23 ½ degrees North • Tropic of Capricorn = 23 ½ degrees South Tropic of Cancer Equator Tropic of Capricorn

Slide8Free Powerpoint TemplatesPage 8 Exercise: Please tell what direction you would travel to go from point A coordinates to point B coordinates.  Take the shortest route—what direction would get you there quickest?
