Sceenshots of free ipod apps – World times and Google maps
An activity to learn about time zones around the world – go to “World Clock” and choose four cities from around the world, including the main city closest to where you are now. Try to choose places in both hemispheres and different distances from your main city. Find these cities on “Google Maps” and take a screen shots of the world map. Go to “Etch-a-Sketch” (the free – lite – version is fine) and copy the map into the background. Mark on the map where these cities are and compare the location with the time. Can you estimate the time in other main cities around the world based on these times? Where do you think the international date line is?
