-Fill out the table for the person standing in Canada.
You can estimate the hours the Sun will be up by
looking at how much of Earth is in daylight at the different latitudes. For example, at the Tropic of Cancer,
about 2/3 of Earth is in daylight, and 2/3 of
24 hours is 16 hours of daylight. Next, move the
observer first to the North Pole and then to the
Equator and fill out the table for each of these
-Think of typical temperatures at the three locations you visited. Based on your data, can you determine
which would be more important for warm weather, the Sun’s altitude or how many hours it is up? Cite
evidence from the above table for your answer.
