  • 1. Lesson plan<br />LESSON 1 Mapping the world<br />What are maps: <br />The map is a grid to locate places. <br />The compass rose:<br />Maps usually include a compass rose.<br />Most maps are drawn with north at the top.<br />3) The latitude and the longitude<br />The equator is an imaginary line drawn on maps around the middle of the earth. It divides the world into a northern half and a southern half. Each half is called a hemisphere. <br />Latitude:<br />Latitude is an imaginary line which goes across the map from East to West.<br />The latitude lines have important numbers on them. Latitude 0° is also called the Equator.<br />Lines of latitude (or parallels) are always parallel to the equator. Latitude lines north of the Equator have numbers in degrees showing how far they are north of the equator. The North Pole is farthest North, therefore its latitude is 90°north.<br />Important lines of latitude include:<br />-The tropic of Cancer: Line of latitude 23.5°north of the equator<br />- The tropic of Capricorn: Line of latitude 23.5°south of the equator<br />b) longitude:<br />Lines of longitude (or meridians) are drawn up and down a map from north to south. The numbers on longitude lines tell us about how far east or west they are of an imaginary line called the Prime Meridian. The Prime Meridian runs through Greenwich, near London. <br />You can find any place on earth by using latitude and longitude.<br />Lesson 2 Discovering Australia <br />Answer the following questions:<br />In which hemisphere is Australia situated?<br />Does the Tropic of Capricorn go across Australia?<br />Draw a red X at latitude 20°N, longitude 120°E on the map. <br /> Which is the most northern city in Australia?<br /> How many miles are there between Brisbane and Adelaide (using the scale on the map)?<br />What direction would you travel to go from Canberra to Darwin?<br />Which state of Australia is farthest South?<br />. <br />
