Transcript of World Geo Tools of Geography Part 2
World Geography Chapter 1
Hemispheres, Continents, and Oceans
vs. Flat Map
Ticket Out Of The Door! Ch.1 L2
1. How is the Earth organized regarding amount of continents and oceans? Are they all shown accurately on maps?
2. How do different climate zones affect the way in which people live?
3. How do geographers show information on maps?
Standards and Objectives
Florida State Standards
SS. 912 G1.1, SS. 912 G1.2, SS. 912 G1.3, and SS. 912 G3.1
1. Locate all major hemispheres, continents, and oceans around the world
2. Describe earth's movement and how earth's tilt creates seasons and climate zones
3. Analyze different maps and explain the problem of distortion

is tilted at an angle relative to the
sun, it creates the Earth's seasons (pg. 21)
- When the northern hemisphere is in summer, the southern hemisphere is in winter (
towards the sun)
- When the southern hemisphere is in summer,
the northern hemisphere is in winter
south tilted towards the sun)
Tropic of Cancer and Capricorn -tropic zones-
northernmost and southernmost points where
the sun's rays beat straight down on earth
- Arctic and Antarctic Circle -polar zones- coldest points on earth where night lasts
- between the tropical and polar zones- warm summers and cool winters
Draw it in your Notebook!
- Every flat map of Earth involves some
...sizes and shapes may be wrong, and distances may not be accurately shown
- Different map projections help deal with
- Robinson Projection
- Lambert Projection
- Mercator Projection
- Eckert IV Projection
- Goode's Projections
