Title: GEOGRAPHY%20TERMS


1
GEOGRAPHY TERMS
  • Write notes in SINK SPIRAL

2
CONTINENT
  • One of the seven large bodies of land on the
    earth.
  • North America, South America, Europe, Asia,
    Africa, Australia, Antarctica.
  • They are separated or nearly separated from one
    another by water.

3
OCEAN
  • The body of water which covers more than half the
    earth, is divided into smaller parts called
    oceans.
  • The earth has four oceans Atlantic, Pacific,
    Indian, Arctic.

QUIZ OVER CONTINENTS AND OCEANS WILL BE NEXT WEEK!
5
HEMISPHERE
  • Hemi means half and sphere means circle.
  • Each hemisphere shows one half of the earth at a
    time.
  • The earth is divided into the Northern, Southern,
    Eastern and Western Hemispheres.

7
EQUATOR
  • An imaginary line around the earth halfway
    between the North Pole and the South Pole.

8
EQUATOR
  • The Equator divides the Earth into Northern and
    Southern Hemispheres.
  • The Equator circles the middle of the Earth like
    a belt. It is located between the North and
    South Poles.

9
NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN HEMISPHERES
  • Everything north of the Equator is in the
    Northern Hemisphere.
  • Everything south of the Equator is in the
    Southern Hemisphere

10
LINES OF LATITUDE-EQUATOR
  • The Equator is 0 degrees latitude.
  • The letter N or S that follows the degree
    symbol tells you if the location is north or
    south of the equator.
  • Ex North Pole is 90 degrees N latitude and the
    South Pole is 90 degrees S latitude

90 N
90 S
11
LINES OF LATITUDE
  • Lines of latitude are imaginary circles that run
    east and west around the globe known as
    parallels.
  • These parallels divide the globe into degrees.
  • Lines of latitude measure distance north and
    south of the equator.

12
PRIME MERIDIAN
  • Prime Meridian is 0 degrees longitude.
  • An imaginary line that runs North and South and
    divides the earth into Western and Eastern
    Hemispheres.
  • The letter E or W tells you if the location
    is east or west of the Prime Meridian.

EAST
WEST
Prime Meridian
13
PRIME MERIDIAN
  • The Prime Meridian divides the Earth into Eastern
    Western Hemispheres.
  • The Prime Meridian (also called the Meridian of
    Greenwich) runs through Greenwich, England. It
    runs from the North Pole to the South Pole.

14
EASTERN AND WESTERN HEMISPHERES
  • Everything east of the Prime Meridian for 180
    degrees is in the Eastern Hemisphere.
  • Everything west of the Prime Meridian for 180
    degrees is in the Western Hemisphere.

15
LINES OF LONGITUDE
  • Lines of Longitude, are imaginary lines also
    known as meridians, run from the North Pole to
    the South Pole.
  • Longitude measures distance east and west of the
    Prime Meridian.
