Travel Guide To Planet Earth

Places you should visit!

Mt. Everest and good/bad things about it

You should definitely visit Mt. Everest in Tingri, Xigaze, China. It is very fun, but scary. You should go there for factual reasons: It is the tallest mountain, don't you want to climb the tallest mountain! Another reason is because if you live (not scare you or anything), wouldn't you want to brag about how you climbed Mt. Everest! Did you know: 3,100 people were recorded climbing Mt. Everest in 2011!?

The Midway Atoll and its good/bad things

The Midway Atoll in Midway Island, is cool, but there is two things you should know: 1. There is trash all over. 2. The only way you can get there is basically by bike. So make sure you come prepared! I am not sure if you should swim there, but if you are going there anyway, you should just bring your swim suit just in case. The Midway Atoll is really pretty so if your going to bring your camera, I would bring some extra batteries because you will be taking a lot of pictures!

3 Ways we divide the Earth

1st Way we divide the Earth

Time zones are the first way we divide up the Earth. You should know about time zone if you are going to visit the places I recommended you because some laces you could go from it being 4-22-15 to 4-23-15 an get everything confused because you don't know about time zones. Basically time zones are there because the sun hits one part of the Earth at a time so it would not make since to have the same times all around the world because then kids would be at school when its dark out.

2nd Way we divide the Earth

Hemispheres is another way we divide up the Earth. Hemispheres divide the Earth in four half's. It is divided into four half's because of the seasonal tilt. They made it that way because of the equator and prime meridian, and because of North, South, East, and West. A way to remember the name of them and how they are in orders is to know your North, South, East, and West.

3rd Way we divide the Earth

Continents is the 3rd way we divide the Earth. There is many ways to divide the Earth in Continents. The most simple way is the way I show in the picture to the right. That picture shows the Earth in seven ways: North, South, and Central America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. To me it is the most simple way, but do it any way you like.

Where did I get my Pictures?

You will find all of these pictures on google if you type in something like Mt. Everest you will find my pictures that I used for my flyer. Hope you enjoyed!!!
