Transcript of L and L Ashlie Smith
Welcome to the world of Latitude and Longitude
These are lines on a map to help you find a coordinate.
Latitude is the lines that go side to side or horizontal and it's North and South from the Equator
When you follow the horizontal lines you will have to curve with them, or you will get the wrong coordinate
Longitude is the lines going up and down, or it's the vertical lines, and it's on the West and East of the Prime Meridian
When you follow the vertical lines you will have to curve your finger with the line, or you will get the wrong coordinate
First you look for your first number that is the horizontal lines, then find the next number that is the vertical lines then move your fingers until they meet.
- prime meridian
Start by looking at the up and down lines and curve with them to find your coordinate
is an imaginary line that goes across to separate North and South
is an imaginary line that separate East and West.
First look and see if the coordinate is above or below the equator if it is above the equator its North and if its below its South
ex. 15N, 90W
When you find coordinates your first number will be the lines that go side to side, and you will place your finger there and meet with your second number
First you look and see if your second number is Left or Right of the Prime Meridian. If it's left it would be West and if its right it would be East
First look at your first number, and see if it's North or South from the Equator. Next you look at your second number and see if its East or West from the Prime Meridian.
What is the Equator?
One thing I had trouble doing was curving with the lines to find the right coordinate
What is the Prime Meridian?
Is North or South below the Equator?
Is East left or right of the Prime Meridian?
