Students will learn about the location and significance of the North Pole, South Pole, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn, Arctic Circle and Antarctic Circle. Additionally, students will learn the location and characteristics of the three major world climates - the polar regions, temperate regions and tropical region. Students will label a "globe" on their handout. Then, using a classroom atlas, students will practice what they learned. They will be presented with various locations and will determine the climate region that each city is located in. Finally, students will work in pairs to receive a strip of paper with a city or physical feature labeled on it. Students will determine the climate region of the location and will then draw three items in a suitcase in order to be prepared for a trip there.
