Where in the World are the Tropics?

This term, we’re furthering our atlas and map skills by exploring the lines of longitude and latitude, among other key words you may have seen popping up in our spelling words. Last week, we discussed the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn (which we also learned were named because of which constellation the Earth was facing at the time!) and the Tropic region.

We found out that not all locations on the Equator are hot, in fact, we learned that a particular mountain in Kenya is quite the opposite. Can you name it in the comments?
