These lines are called Latitude and Longitude lines.
These lines on the map help you find coordinates.
Coordinates are two digit numbers on a grid that go side to side on the equator, or the lines that go up and down on the prime meridian.
Welcome to the world of Latitude and
Longitude lines are the lines on the map that go up and down on the prime meridian . They can be East or West of the prime meridian also. The lines that are more curvy are the lines that are more accurate. This is the second/last number you will use.
To find a coordinate you have to find a number and follow the lines the way they go. For example the black dot on the grid is 10N,10S.
Latitude lines are the lines on the map that go left to right on the equator, they can be North or South of the equator also. This is the first number you use.
To find the first number to a coordinate you first have to go side to side on the equator to find the numbers on the North or South coordinate blocks. Then you would have to go up in down for the East or West prime meridian. For example the pink dot is on 60S, and if you follow the line right as it curves it will end up at 120E.
To find the second number on the map you need to go up and down, you cant go up and down before you go side to side. If you do it right it should be in the West or East grid. For example the blue dot is on 40N, and 80W, and that is West Virginia.
To find North and South of the Equator you need to go from side to side on the map. For North you go 20N, and the pink dot will show you that. North is the top of the equator. Ten the pink dot should be in Africa.
To find South of the Equator you need to go side to side also, if you go 20S then you should end up in Oceania and the yellow dot shows you that.
