Name______________________________Section_____Number_____ Our Location and Our Country’s Geography Lessons 3.1-3.2 Study Guide Test Date: ____________________ Some suggestions for helping your child to study: Try to study for 5-10 minutes a night for a few nights leading up to the test, instead of studying for a large block of time the night before. The first night, just read through the study guide with your child so that they know what is on the test, and so that you know how much they need to study for it. A few days before the test, ask your child the information as questions. Highlight any information they don’t know readily, and focus only on that for the next few nights. Information on the test: Students will need to label the hemispheres. A set of flashcards is attached with vocabulary words. We will continue to practice latitude and longitude in class, as students will answer 4 questions finding places on a map using JUST latitude or JUST longitude. Students should be familiar with the following information: A globe shows the true shapes of continents and oceans. The closer you live to the equator, the warmer your weather will be (usually). Places near the equator are warmer because they get more direct sunlight.
