Additional Lessons 101 - 110 of 687 for Latitude and Longitude
  101.   Introduction to Latitude and Longitude
Introduction to Latitude and Longitude Overview: This lesson introduces students to latitude and longitude. They will look at lines of latitude and longitude on a United States map and discuss the reasons why these lines are helpful. Students will also discuss the ways that temperatures vary with latitude and will explain the clothes they might wear...

  103.   Walking on Maps
...tudents can play the games Twister and Simon Says to introduce and reinforce map concepts. Group activities, discussion questions, and a scavenger hunt can extend the lesson for up to a week s worth of activities. Keywords: maps, equator, hemispheres, continents, map keys, north, south, east, west, latitude, longitude, map skills Body: 1. Create a large map by using an overhead projector to enlarge a transparency of a map onto a tarp or a bedsheet. A tarp works best as it is more durable and weighted. With a large tip permanent marker, simply transfer the image of the map that you would like to focus on and lay the map down eith...

...ransferred the most energy to the solar panel; vertical rays from the Sun hitting Earth's surface must do the same. [Standard 6: 1.2] 8. a) near the equator; b) near the poles [Standard 4: 1.1f] 9. The Sun is higher in the sky in those areas receiving more vertical rays. Or, people leaving at lower latitudes receive the most sunlight at noon. [Standard 4: 1.1f ] 10. No, it produces differences in weather and climate (warmer near the equator), and it leads to the development of air masses over these source areas. [Standard 4: 2.2j,k,l] 11. Air in the hot region rises and flows along the top of the atmosphere toward the poles. Air...

  105.   Solar Energy in New York
...ns in New York City, aiming the solar panels 35 degrees to the west of south would maximize solar collection around 2:20 p.m. (15 degrees of Earth rotation/hour). The 30-degree tilt of the collector would produce perpendicular Sun's rays when the Sun is 70 degrees above the horizon. Since NYC has a latitude of about 41 degrees north, maximum altitude of the Sun on June 21 = 90 - (41 - 23.5) = 90 - 17.5 = 72.5 degrees. During July the maximum altitude is in the low 70s to high 60s. 16. Responses should vary, but the desirable state is that a collector array collects as much energy as possible during the entire year, so the array...
