Three Ways to Divide up the Earth

One way we humans divide up the Earth is by regions. Regions are when the land is divided into the Midwest, Northwest, Northeast, Southwest and Southeast. Another way is by continents. The Seven continents are Asia, Europe, South America, North America, Africa, Australia and Antarctica. Europe and Asia are one big piece of land but, we call it two different continents.The last way we divide up the Earth is climate zones. Climate zones have to do with how cold or warm it is where you live. If you live closer to the middle of the Earth (equator) then it is warmer. If you live farther from the equator (North and South Poles) then it is colder there.You aliens need to know these ways because it will help you figure out direction on Planet Earth.
