International Time Zones/Latitude and


As the Earth turns, various parts of the world pass into daylight then into darkness. 
Countries around the world experience the cycle of day and night at different times in 
each 24-hour rotation of the Earth. The world is divided into 24 time zones, each one a
 long strip from the North Pole to the South  Pole and one hour different in time. 
Everyone living in one time zone sets the time the same way.

Watch the short clips below on Time Zones:
