- 3. Latitude and Longitude Latitude and longitude are two grid points by which you can locate any point of earth.
- 4. Latitude Latitude ALWAYS comes before longitude. Youcan remember that because the “a” in latitude comes before “o” in longitude. A way to remember that Latitude runs East to West is to think about the rhyme “Lat lays flat”

- 6. 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
- 7. Longitude A way to remember that longitude lines run North to South is to find the word “long” in the word “longitude.” 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.
- 8. 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.
