Unit One Notes 2

  1. 1. The Earth’s Climate Zones <br />CLIMATE: the pattern of weather of a place over many years<br />TEMPERATE ZONE: Found between the Tropic of Cancer and the Arctic Circle (Northern Hemisphere) and between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Antarctic Circle (Southern Hemisphere) <br />POLAR ZONE: An area north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle <br />TROPICAL ZONE: Area between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Tropic of Cancer<br />PRECIPITATION: the falling of moisture such as rain and snow <br />
  2. 2. Climate zones <br />Atlas: Page 128<br />You will need:<br />Red, Blue, Green colors<br />Label and write latitudes for: <br /> Equator<br /> Tropic of Cancer <br /> Tropic of Capricorn <br /> Arctic Circle <br />Antarctic Circle <br />Using your definitions, color in the three Climate Zones. Use this key: <br />Temperate: Green <br />Polar: Blue<br />Tropical: Red<br />
  3. 3. Honduras<br />Guatemala<br />El Salvador<br /> Barbados<br /> Fiji<br /> Colombia<br /> Ecuador<br /> Panama<br /> Nicaragua<br /> Namibia<br /> Ghana<br /> Senegal<br />13. South Africa<br />14. Mozambique<br />15.  Uganda<br />16.  Kenya<br />17.  Eritrea<br />18.  Pakistan<br />19.  Moldova<br />20.  Solomon Islands<br />21.  Jamaica<br />Country List<br />
  4. 4. Population Density<br />Economic Activity <br />Climate<br />
  5. 5. Climate<br />Geographers divide earth into climate zones <br />Each zone has a different pattern of precipitation and temperature <br />This pattern is shown on a climagraph<br />Bars show monthly precipitation<br />Curved line shows temperature per month <br />
  6. 6. 12 different Climate zones<br />Ice Cap<br />Subarctic<br />Marine West Coast<br />Tundra<br />Highlands<br />Humid Continental<br />Mediterranean<br />Semiarid<br />Tropical Wet and Dry<br />Humid Subtropical<br />Arid<br />Tropical Wet <br />
  7. 7. Population Density<br />Use textbook page 34-35<br />Answer, in complete sentences, in class notes: <br />What is population density?<br />How does a geographer calculate the density of a place?<br />How does population density affect how people live? <br />List the 5 categories for population density and list at least two cities that fit into each category using the maps around the room. <br />
  8. 8. Population Density<br />What is it?<br />A measure that tells us how crowded a place is<br />Higher number= more crowded the place is! <br />
  9. 9. New York City: 26,000 people per mile!<br />Mongolia: 4 people per mile <br />Population Density<br />
  10. 10. Different ways of showing population density<br />NY Times Map<br />
  11. 11. Population Density<br />On your index card, next line down:<br />Using the absolute location of your country, write down the population density of your country. <br />
  12. 12. Economic Activity: Land and resources <br />How do people USE the land they live on? <br />It is different because everyone uses the land they live on to meet their needs<br />Examples: farming, mining. <br />
  13. 13. Economic Activity: Land and resources <br />Economic activity depends on a country’s resources <br />
  14. 14. Economic Activity: Land and resources <br />Other resources:<br />Fossil Fuels (oil, coal, natural gas), uranium, moving water= provide fuel and power<br />
  15. 15. Land Use<br />Hunting and Gathering<br />Subsistence Farming<br />Commercial Farming<br />Nomadic Herding<br />Livestock Raising<br />Commercial Fishing<br />Forestry<br />Trade and Manufacturing <br />Each should have a picture, definition, and example! <br />
  16. 16. Example:<br />Hunting and Gathering: people hunt for animals and gather plants for food. <br />Example: hunters in Greenland<br />
