    Draw an outline map of Latin America on the opposite page or on a separate sheet of paper. Add a compass rose to your map, showing where north, south, east, and west are. Then draw and label these features where you think they are located:

    • the equator

    • other regions or bodies of water that you think lie north, south, east, and west of this region

    • the area(s) that you think have a humid, tropical climate

    • the area(s) that you think have a cold, polar climate

    • the area(s) that you think have the greatest population

    • the area(s) that you think have the smallest population
