Vocabulary you will need to know this week-
Latitude- imaginary lines that form circles around the Earth east-west, parallel to the Equator. These lines run horizontally.
Longitude- imaginary lines that run around the Earth vertically (up and down) and meet at the North and South Poles. These lines are known as meridians.
Greenwich Meridian- Time zones are divided by imaginary lines called meridians which run from the North Pole to the South Pole. There is an imaginary line running through the UK called the Prime Meridian. It runs through a place in London called Greenwich.
