  4. 4. Review <ul><li>What is Geography? </li></ul><ul><li>Why were the 5 Themes of Geography created? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the different between relative location and absolute location? </li></ul>
  5. 5. BRAIN POP VIDEO
  6. 6. Latitude and Longitude <ul><li>Latitude and longitude are two grid points by which you can locate any point of earth. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Latitude <ul><li>Latitude ALWAYS comes before longitude. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You can remember that because the “a” in l a titude comes before “o” in l o ngitude. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A way to remember that Latitude runs East to West is to think about the rhyme “Lat lays flat” </li></ul>
  8. 8. Latitude <ul><li>The Equator is the boundary line that divides the globe into Northern and Southern hemispheres. </li></ul><ul><li>The Equator registers at 0 degrees latitude. </li></ul><ul><li>Find the Equator on your map and highlight it. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Latitude <ul><li>When you see a coordinate that says the location is 30 degrees South. That means that the location is 30 degrees below the Equator. </li></ul><ul><li>When you see a coordinate that says the location is 30 degrees North. That means that the location is 30 degrees above the Equator </li></ul>
  10. 10. Longitude <ul><li>A way to remember that longitude lines run North to South is to find the word “long” in the word “ long itude.” </li></ul><ul><li>The Prime Meridian is the boundary line that divides the globe into the Eastern and Western hemispheres. </li></ul><ul><li>The Prime Meridian registers at 0 degrees longitude </li></ul><ul><li>Find the Prime Meridian on your map and highlight it. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Longitude <ul><li>The Earth is divided into 360 equal parts called meridians. There are 180 equal parts West and 180 equal parts East of the Prime Meridian </li></ul><ul><li>When you see a coordinate that says the location is 30 degrees East. That means that the location is 30 degrees to the right of the Prime Meridian. </li></ul><ul><li>When you see a coordinate that says the location is 30 degrees West. That means that the location is 30 degrees to the left of the Prime Meridian. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Map Skills <ul><li>Looking at your Continents and Oceans Map try and find the latitude and longitude coordinates for points A and B. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Write your latitude and longitude coordinates at the bottom of you map. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Once you have tried on your own turn to your partner and share. </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Map Skill Answers <ul><li>The coordinates for points A and B are as follows: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A) 30 degrees N, 60 degrees W </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>B) 45 degrees S, 90 degrees E </li></ul></ul>
