15 Although the UK is located very far north, a current of warm ocean water called the Gulf Stream flows by the British Isles and keeps temperatures mild.

19 The island of Great Britain has a jagged coastline with good harbors for trading vessels. Great Britain is divided into a highland zone (north and west) and a lowland zone (south and east). Important natural resources like coal, oil, and natural gas are found in the mountainous highland zone.

20 Most Britons live in the lowland zone, where farming and England s major cities are located. Only about 1% of British people work in agriculture, and the country has to import about one-third of its food. Most live in Urban areas. (Cities or towns) More than 7 million people live in London!

21 Great Britain also has thriving manufacturing industries, including iron and steel production and electronics.

22 Large reserves of oil and natural gas found recently in the North Sea have made Great Britain a major supplier of those resources.

26 Spans 2 continents: Europe & Asia! So wide that a train trip across takes a week! (It is the largest country in the world) Shares a border with 15 countries Eastern side is bound by Pacific Ocean Northern side is bounded by Arctic Ocean At its closest point, Russia & US are only 3 miles apart across Bering Strait!

How does Climate affect how people trade? How do Natural resources affect how people trade? Russia Worlds largest country shares a border with 15 other countries

28 The Gulf Stream does not affect Russia; therefore, due to its location, Russia s climate is severe in many areas. In some areas it is so cold that the soil is permanently frozen which hinders farming and economic development. Russia is unfavorably located in relation to major sea lanes of the world which further inhibits trade.

29 Most citizens live in western Russia on the European Plain Russia s major cities, farms, grazing land for livestock, and the country s warmest temperatures are located in western Russia.

30 How does location affect where people live? How does Climate affect where people live? Russia Russia is a far north country but does not benefit from the warm gulf stream. The Atlantic ocean brings very cold temperatures from the archtic. People live in the European side where it is warmer. Most of Russia is extremely cold much of the year. How do Natural resources affect where people live? How does location affect how people trade? Worlds largest country shares a border with 15 other countries How does Climate affect how people trade? How do Natural resources affect how people trade?

31 Russia has a very cold climate, thanks to its location near the Arctic Ocean. Russia does not get a lot of rainfall, and only about 10% of Russia s total land is suitable for agriculture. Grains like wheat and barley are major crops. Russia imports a lot of its food, particularly meat.

37 Russia is rich in mineral resources, with huge deposits of coal, oil, and natural gas, and massive forests. Unfortunately, it is difficult and expensive to harvest and transport these resources because of the harsh climate and remote locations.

38 Many Russian goods are transported by railroad because rivers and major ports are blocked by ice in the winter. Russia s mining, manufacturing, and fishing industries are fueled by the country s natural resources.

The Atlantic ocean brings very cold temperatures from the arctic. People live in the European side where it is warmer. Most of Russia is extremely cold much of the year. Many natural resources are in the Cold Asia part of Russia, so some people live in a harsh difficult climate to get to them. Worlds largest country shares a border with 15 other countries Many of Russia s ports are in the arctic ocean which freezes over during the winter so they have to do much of their trade with trains. it is difficult and expensive to harvest and transport these resources because of the harsh climate and remote locations.
