Questions How does Geography organize itself? Write the date. Open your notebook.
Start a new page. 1. What is another name for a line of latitude?
2. Describe what a line of latitude is. (What direction is it and what does it measure?)
3. Make a simple diagram of the earth to show
lines of latitude.
Include and label the equator and 8 lines of latitude. Use page 1 and page 2. Read page 1, when
you finish answer these questions... 1. What is another name for a line of longitude?
2. Describe what a line of longitude is. (What direction is it and what does it measure?)

latitude, longitude. Close your notebook.
Read through page 3.
Turn to page 4 and answer the question for the green dot. Using page 5 from the notes and page 5 in your atlas, draw a simple diagram to show the four hemispheres of the earth.
Then make a chart to show which continents are in which hemisphere. (Remember some are in more than one!)
We will set up our charts like my example...
Put pages 1-4 in your Humanities folder.
We will now use our atlases.
