Welcome To Planet Earth

by:Gavin Markman 1st hour

Here are some things you need to know before you can have fun on our planet!

Three ways to separate the Earth

  1. Climate zones
  2. Time zones
  3. Continents

The reason this it important

  1. Climate Zones: to pack for the weather, and to see how cold or hot it is somewhere
  2. Time Zones: if you go into a different time zone, it will mess up your internal clock
  3. Continents: to know where you are at in the world
