• Warm- Up: Latitude Longitude Pre Test #7 • Content Objective: SWBAT identify location based on latitude and longitude coordinates. • Language Objectives: Define latitude, longitude, Prime Meridian, and Equator.

Pre-Test Answers: 1. Lines of Latitude measure distance: North and South 2. Three states below 30°N = Florida, Texas, Louisiana 3. State mostly east of 70°W = Maine 4. Three states that extend west of 120°W = California, Oregon, Washington

6. X is on: Water 7. Star coordinates = 20°N, 100°W Total up your Pre-Test and turn it into Mrs. Mc. Kenica. Formative grade is out of 12.

Latitude and Longitude

• Latitude and longitude work like a map grid, but on a global scale. These two sets of imaginary lines encircle the globe. Locations on these lines are stated in degrees (°). • Latitude and Longitude coordinates are the best way to find exact location on the Earth. • What are some other ways to locate places? • Why do you think latitude and longitude are better ways to locate places?

• Prime Meridian: starting point for measuring longitude. It is labeled as 0⁰ and runs north/south.

• Longitude: Lines on a map used to measure distance east or west of the Prime Meridian

• Equator: line of latitude that is the halfway point between the North and South Pole. It is labeled as 0⁰ and runs east/west.

• Latitude: lines on a map used to measure distance north or south of the Equator

Latitude is 1 st and Longitude is 2 nd: Find: 35⁰ N, 120⁰ W What state is it in?

• Now we are going to quietly practice with a partner nearby. • Turn your paper over to the back and use the coordinates to find the location of the letter they are referring to. • PLEASE ASK FOR HELP IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND! =)
