3 Ways to Split The Earth

One the Earth is split up is by the climate zones.

The closer you get to the poles(north and south) the colder it gets.

The closer to the equator the warmer it gets.


Another way we split up the Earth is by continents.

On Earth we have 7 continents.

The 7 continents are...

1.) Asia

2.) Australia

3.) North America

4.) South America

5.) Africa

6.) Antarctica

7.) Europe

Asia and Europe are on the same piece of land they are split by who owns the land.


Also we split up the world by time zones.

We split up the Earth into time zones because the sun goes up and sets at different times in different places of the world.

If you go to New York, New York and then travel to Benji,China then there will be a time change.
