lines of longitude are parallel instead of converging
lines of latitude and longitude are very accurate
countries near the equator believe that this false perception is unfair
they are triangle maps
useful for land area measuring
does not show the size or area of countries accurately,but shows their shapes relatively accurately
everyone loves this map
useful for ocean navigation because it showed constant compass bearings
they are cylindrical projection maps
lines of latitude and longitude become further apart as you move away from the equator

Physical geography is things such as
Geography helps us understand
study of elements using compounds.
study of weather events based on the outdoors.
study of earth using pictures and writing.
study of people based on where they live.
The possible patterns and relationships between different things.
The possible growth of populations and the study of them.
It is the study of where things are.
It is the study of where mountains are.
not many people live in colder temperatures
the warmer the weather, the larger the populations
people go where there are not good qualities of life
trappers follow animals
many cities are named from Aboriginal names
lumberjacks find large forests
large populations are near sports/hockey teams
people go where they can find better qualities of life
fruit will grow above 23 degrees north of the equator
plants don't grow anywhere but in the desert
large cities are near deserts
large cities are near water
big cities=big factories
the more natural resources available, the more people live here
plants requiring less water are in the desert
populations are not in deserts
big cities=small factories
people tend to avoid sports teams
people go where there is war
lumberjacks give up when there is no more wood
fruit won't grow above 23 degrees north of the equator
trappers hunt one species in one place
the less natural resources available, the more people live there
many cities are named after famous people
the colder the temperatures, the larger the populations
populations are in deserts
it is the building of Earth's physical and human systems, and the relationships between them.
it is the study of Earth's physical and human systems, and the relationships between them.
it is the destruction of Earth's physical and human systems, and the relationships between them.
We all need
throughout our lives.
Geographic knowledge helps us
traffic, crops, animals, land, farming, weather
traffic, crops, animals, land, weather, space ships
crops, animals, curtain length, traffic, land, weather
find out what spaceship to ride in
what to wear (weather, location)
navigate through places
