Answer Key for Chapter 4 Test
#15 is F #16 is B #17 is D

Lesson 4, page 16
Oceans ranked by size are Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Antarctic, and then the Arctic.

Lesson 7, page 38 Conversion Examples, B should read:
Calgary, Alberta to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Lesson 7, Critical Thinking Activity, Page 38
209 km should be 290 km

Chapter 2 Test, page 55
#14 should read: "How many kilometers are there in seven miles?"

Page 58, The fifth paragraph should read:
"The US and Canada each have six time zones. We share Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific Time Zones. We include Alaska Time and Hawaii-Aleutian Time to the west while Canada includes Atlantic Time to the east with the island portion of Newfoundland being on the half hour between Atlantic and Greenland Time. The Eastern Time Zone is centered on the 75° west meridian of longitude. Central Time is centered on the 90° west meridian. The Mountain Time Zone is centered on the 105° west meridian. See how the zones measure in 15° increments? Thus the Pacific Time Zone is centered on the 120° west meridian. Alaska is 135° west and Hawaii is 150° west. Can you determine the time zone for Atlantic Time? It will be 15° east of Eastern Time which is centered on the 75th meridian of longitude. Remember to subtract 15° as we are moving to the east. If Greenland is the next time zone to the east, which meridian would it be based on? Since part of Newfoundland is on the half hour between Atlantic Time and Greenland Time which meridian would it be centered on?"

Page 51:
"Earth is closest in January with a distance of 91.3 million miles
(147 million km) and farthest in July at 94.5 million miles (152 million
km). Average distance is 93 million miles (150 million km)."

Lesson 12 Teacher's Guide, Statement #8 should read:
"post meridian" or "after the meridian"

Page 73, Lesson 14, question #2:"List the four layers of the earth."

Page 97 Teacher's Guide asks for the definition of accretion. Omit, please.

The textbook is designed to be used in conjunction with The Student Activity Workbook. The goal is to know every country in the world by the end of the year. Follow your Specific Learning Activities guide, please. I strongly encourage you to make copies of the b/w masters in the map packet, and draw in the volcanoes, deserts, major mountains and other physical features as you cover them in the physical geography text. Then as we study each continent you have already learned the physical features, can mentally map the countries and can apply the physical geography to a political map. In this way our cultural, historical and economic study makes ever so much more sense!
