REVIEW: WORLD MAP
Review: Using a Grid
 1.At the intersection of which two
streets is the Church of Santa Rosa?
 2. What is the grid location of San
Marcos University?
 3. If you were walking from the
Church of La Merced to Trinity
Church, what avenue would you
walk along?
 4. What street would you take to get
from the Church of San Augustin to
the Church of Jesus Maria?
 5. If you were telling someone the
location of the building where
Congress meets, what two streets
would you name?
 1. Conde de Superunda
&amp; Tacna Ave
 2. D 4
 3. Cusco Avenue
 4. Camana Street
 5. Ayachucho Street &amp;
Huallaga Street
Parallels vs Meridians

What are
parallels?
Parallels are lines
that run across
the globe
horizontally and
never meet up with
each other. We
use parallels to
measure latitude.
The Equator is O
degrees latitude.
The World- Important Parallels
 On “The World I” map, complete the
following:




1. Trace the Equator (0&ordm;) in RED.
2. Trace the Tropic of Cancer (23 1/2&ordm; N) and the
Tropic of Capricorn (23 1/2&ordm; S) in ORANGE
3. Trace the Arctic Circle (66 1/2&ordm; N) and the
Antarctic Circle (66 1/2&ordm;S) in PURPLE
Trace the North Pole (90&ordm;N) and the South Pole
(90&ordm;S) in BLUE
What are
meridians?
Meridians are lines
that run from the
north pole to the
south pole. We
measure longitude
by using meridians.
The Prime
Meridian is O
degrees longitude.
The World- Important Meridians
 On “The World II” map, complete the
following:


1. Trace the Prime Meridian (0&ordm;) in RED.
2. Trace the International Date Line (180&ordm;) in
GREEN. Be sure to trace it on both sides of your
map.
LATITUDE vs LONGITUDE
LATITUDE measures
distance NORTH and
SOUTH of the
EQUATOR.
Longitude measures
distance EAST and
WEST of the Prime
Meridian

Citing Latitude &amp; Longitude
 Latitude ALWAYS comes before
Longitude (Latitude comes first
alphabetically too!)
 Example: Cairo, Egypt is found at
30&deg;N Latitude, 30&deg;E Longitude
 (It is 30&deg;N of the Equator and
30&deg;E of the Prime Meridian)
Finding Latitude
 1)Use the Parallels to find Latitude.
2)Trace a horizontal line from the target
city to the right or left of the map.
3)Identify the parallel lines closest to
your city and estimate its LATITUDE.
4)Decide if it lies North or South of the
Equator.
Finding LONGITUDE
 1)Use the MERIDIANS to find
LONGITUDE.
 2)Trace a vertical line from the target
city to the top or bottom of the map.
 3)Identify the meridians closest to your
city and estimate its LONGITUDE.
4)Decide if it lies EAST or WEST of
the Prime Meridian.

E) Letter A lies at 20 &deg;S, 100 &deg;E
F) Letter E lies at 40 &deg;N, 60 &deg;E
 Did you get them all right? 
WHERE in the WORLD is Ms. D?
A Latitude/Longitude game
 Ms. DiLissio is hiding somewhere in your
textbook’s atlas!
 You may ask her up to 10 yes/no questions to try to
find her.
 The first person to guess her correct location wins!
