    • BRAIN POP VIDEO
    • Latitude and Longitude
      • Latitude and longitude are two grid points by which you can locate any point of earth.
    • Latitude
      • Latitude ALWAYS comes before longitude.
        • You can remember that because the “a” in l a titude comes before “o” in l o ngitude.
      • A way to remember that Latitude runs East to West is to think about the rhyme “Lat lays flat”
    • Latitude
      • The Equator is the boundary line that divides the globe into Northern and Southern hemispheres.
      • The Equator registers at 0 degrees latitude.
      • Find the Equator on your map and highlight it.
    • Latitude
      • When you see a coordinate that says the location is 30 degrees South. That means that the location is 30 degrees below the Equator.
      • When you see a coordinate that says the location is 30 degrees North. That means that the location is 30 degrees above the Equator
    • Longitude
      • A way to remember that longitude lines run North to South is to find the word “long” in the word “ long itude.”
      • The Prime Meridian is the boundary line that divides the globe into the Eastern and Western hemispheres.
      • The Prime Meridian registers at 0 degrees longitude
      • Find the Prime Meridian on your map and highlight it.
    • Longitude
      • The Earth is divided into 360 equal parts called meridians. There are 180 equal parts West and 180 equal parts East of the Prime Meridian
      • When you see a coordinate that says the location is 30 degrees East. That means that the location is 30 degrees to the right of the Prime Meridian.
      • When you see a coordinate that says the location is 30 degrees West. That means that the location is 30 degrees to the left of the Prime Meridian.
    • Map Skills
      • Looking at your Continents and Oceans Map try and find the latitude and longitude coordinates for points A and B.
        • Write your latitude and longitude coordinates at the bottom of you map.
        • Once you have tried on your own turn to your partner and share.
    • Map Skill Answers
      • The coordinates for points A and B are as follows:
        • A) 30 degrees N, 60 degrees W
        • B) 45 degrees S, 90 degrees E
