  4. 6. Looking at Latitudes <ul><li>The </li></ul><ul><li>_____________ is an imaginary line that circles the Earth at 0° latitude. </li></ul><ul><li>This is exactly halfway between the North Pole (90° North) and the South Pole (90° South) </li></ul>Equator
  5. 11. The Equator
  6. 12. Looking at Latitudes <ul><li>The Northern boundary of the Tropics, which is </li></ul><ul><li>located at ___________ North is known as the </li></ul><ul><li>___________________. </li></ul><ul><li>The Southern boundary of the Tropics, which is </li></ul><ul><li>located at ___________ South is known as the </li></ul><ul><li>___________________. </li></ul>23 1/2 Tropic of Cancer 23 1/2 Tropic of Capricorn
  7. 13. Arctic Circle 66 1/2 ° N Tropic of Cancer 23 1/2 ° N Equator 0 ° Tropic of Capricorn 23 1/2 ° S Antarctic Circle 66 1/2 ° S Prime Meridian 0 °
  8. 14. “ I Can Eat Corn” Can = Tropic of CAN cer Eat = Equator Corn = Tropic of Capri CORN
  9. 15. Climate Dealing With Latitude <ul><li>The hottest points on the Earth are located directly on </li></ul><ul><li>the __________________, this is the closest point to the sun on the Earth. </li></ul><ul><li>The further away from the Equator that you travel, the colder the temperature becomes. </li></ul><ul><li>Example, the North Pole and South Pole are both tremendously cold as they are about as far away from the Equator as you could be. </li></ul>Equator
  10. 16. Time Zones <ul><li>The Earth has a circumference of </li></ul><ul><li>____________ degrees and you are all aware that </li></ul><ul><li>there are ______ hours in a day. </li></ul><ul><li>So it is impossible for it to be the same time of day at every point on the Earth at the same time. This is where time zones come in. </li></ul><ul><li>In a Time Zone, every </li></ul><ul><li>___________ degrees of </li></ul><ul><li>_________________ equals one hour. </li></ul>360 24 15 Longitude
