Physical Features

Latitude affects climate- the closer you are to the equator- the hotter it will be.

As you move away from the equator- it gets colder

Precipitation- rain, hail, sleet, snow

Highlands (mountains)- the higher you go up the mountain-the colder it will be



Desert doesn’t mean hot- it means dry!

Plants can adapt to extreme environments- plants can even grow in the tundra where it is very cold.

population density

Natural Resources affect a country’s economy.

Examples: coal, iron, uranium, and petroleum

Some resources are found in the water (fishing)
