This summer my husband and I took a 10 day vacation to London and Paris. While in London we ventured to Greenwich where I stood on the Prime Meridian. The Prime Meridian is our Earth's main line of longitude at 0 degrees and separates our earth into the eastern and western hemispheres. I was so excited to do this because I teach lines of longitude and latitude in Social Studies at the beginning of the year during the first nine weeks.
I can't wait to share this with my incoming 4th graders! I'm definitely going to have to blow this picture up and put it where the prime meridian would be in our classroom, maybe right on the overhead projector hanging from the ceiling.
