5
  • Equator, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn

6
  • Tropic of Cancer (North), Tropic of Capricorn
    (South)
  • 23O 26 from the equator (Earths tilt)
  • Direct sunlight only hits the Earth between these
    latitude lines

7
  • Tropic of Cancer
  • Tropic of Capricorn
  • 23O 26 from the equator
  • In Unit 2 Force that Shape our World we will
    learn more about the Earths tilt, how it creates
    our seasons, and the significance of the Tropics.

8
Mesoamerica Central Mexico and South Mexico
through Central America, including Guatemala,
Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador. Sometimes
Nicaragua, and Northern Costa Rica are included.
9
Latitude lines Run East to West Parallel to the
Equator Measures degrees North or South of the
Equator

West of the Prime Meridian.

24
Forces that Shape our Earth
  • The Himalaya and Andes Mountains are being
    created (yes they are still growing) by the
    movement of tectonic plates.

25
Forces that shape our Earth
  • The Andes Mountains are part of the Ring of
    Fire. This region of the world has a high level
    of geographic instability due to the collision of
    the Earths tectonic plates.
