Your thinking of the Prime Meridian, which terminates at the poles, and which connects to the International Date Line -- a non-straight line for political reasons, that essentially mirrors the PM, pole to pole.

What does the north pole and the south pole do?

There are true North and South Poles, and there are magnetic Poles. The planet Earth rotates, or spins, in space (creating day and night, as the place on Earth where we are faces toward or away from the sun). The spin is around an invisible line running through the true poles. There is also a magnetic field around the Earth, which is what makes it possible to tell directions using a compass. The magnetic North and South Poles are not exactly at, but close to, the true North and South Poles.
