Around the World in 80 Days takes place in 1872. A well-to-do Englishman bets his nest egg that he can circumnavigate the world in 80 days. The plot turns on the International Date Line and the effects of the rotation of the Earth on time and travel. This is the best film that we have found to teach this subject. Viewers are also shown several cultures and their different attitudes towards the same events.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Around the World in 80 Days.
At some point, if a traveler goes all the way around the world, he will travel through all 24 time zones and have to adjust his calendar, as well as his watch. The International Date Line, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is the agreed upon line which separates one day from another.
Phileas Fogg traveled around the world beginning in England, going to Europe, the Middle East, India, Asia, across the Pacific to America and then back to England by crossing the Atlantic. In other words, he traveled from West to East. Fogg was traveling around the Earth's axis a little faster than the Earth itself, a little faster than dawn and sunset.
