A class set of globes allowed for a lot of hands-on learning! I invested in a class set of these globe balls to help my students with their map skills. We have been learning about mapping the continents, oceans and various places around the world. We used maps and books to learn, but I wanted to use something even more hands-on.
After learning a bit about different places around the world, we played a game. Students got a sheet of small stickers and I named a location/country/ocean that was on the globe. Students had to find it and place a sticker on it. This also worked well with partners.
