All the time in the world…

Today we are having a creative maths lesson looking at TIME ZONES!

We have discussed Greenwhich Meridian Time often referred to as GMT or Universal Time. In small groups the children have been asked to mark on a world map the basic time zone lines, find the cities and locate them on the map. The challenge then is to answer questions about each country relating back to GMT. 

E.g. If it is 3pm in London what time is it in Dhaka?
First the children had to locate Dhaka, understanding that it is the Capital city of Bangladesh. Next they had to locate Bangladesh on their world map, finally working out whether it is + or – GMT.
