This song is finally available on iTunes: Longitude and Latitude - Single by J-Dub & The Hiphopographics https://itun.es/us/k0WJ9 This is my follow-up to "5 Themes of Geography". I'm teaching science now but my friend & colleague requested something to help students remember and understand how latitude and longitude work. There are references to Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, and Bob Dylan. Special thanks to my daughter for making the Dylanesque cards and to my son for loaning me his football jersey. Go Rams!
(Chorus) Longitude and latitude Are easy if you have the right attitude Your teacher will show you gratitude If you learn longitude and latitude (2 X)
Latitude measures south and north Up and down from the Equator they sally forth They're the lines that run from east to west Like the rungs of a ladder—you'll pass the test
Just don't forget they go both ways North is up, south is down, so look both ways Like a number line or a football field To the cardinal directions latitude yields
The Prime Meridian is where the longitude's counted from Zero at Greenwich is where to get your bearings from To measure west and east the lines are drawn from north to south If it seems too confusing just keep listening to my mouth
Just don't forget they go both ways East is right, west is left, just look both ways Like a number line or a football field To the cardinal directions latitude yields
Longitude, latitude Have the right attitude Teacher show you gratitude Longitude, latitude Lines are going up down Gotta be a class clown Left, right, don't fight Study each and every night Number line, football Read a map, stand tall North, south, east, west Formula for success Have yourself a nice day Don't forget both ways Longitude, latitude Have a better attitude
