If you haven’t found it out already, numbers are important to all aspects of our life. From addresses to phone numbers to your coordinates, they all have their places. Of course longitude and latitude aren’t an everyday need but they will come in handy for you to understand. I love fun ways to remember things so here are some things to help you learn the important aspects easily.
Chants to help you remember which directions the parallels and meridians run:
Longitude lines go up and down, latitude lines go round and round.
The lines of latitude, which sounds like “ladder,” lie like rungs of a ladder.
The lines of longitude are long and all run from the North Pole to the South Pole.
