Time Zones Worksheets

It takes the Earth twenty-four hours to make a complete revolution on its own axis. We call that period of time a day. Since the Earth is a 360-degree sphere it would stand to reason that the Earth rotates fifteen degrees every hour. Due to the day lasting twenty-four hours and the Earth rotating fifteen degrees each hour. The idea of time zones tells us that each of the twenty-four slices (fifteen degrees each) is its own time zone. These worksheets explore the concept and practice of time zones.
