  5. 6. Latitudes <ul><li>Latitude lines are East-West Circles on the globe </li></ul><ul><li>Latitudes are also called </li></ul><ul><li>__________________ because they will never touch or come together. </li></ul><ul><li>Famous lines of latitude </li></ul><ul><ul><li>_________________________ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tropic of Cancer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>___________________________ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>___________________________ </li></ul></ul>Parallels Equator Tropic of Capricorn
