Ubiquitous as they are around here, I can't seem to shake globes from my affections. And don't lie, your inner nerd knows deep down just how cool they are too. For all who emailed or commented on my house tour asking for a tutorial, this post's for you.
Make Social Studies come alive with this fun 3D biography craftivity. This globe craftivity can be used to help students study and learn the continents and oceans of the world. There are two different views of the world map: the Western hemisphere and the Eastern hemisphere.
Here you'll find a printable pattern for a basic globe showing lines of latitude and longitude and the outlines of the continents. The rest is left blank for you to fill in. That way, your globe can be customized to show political boundaries, climate, physical geography or whatever else you might want to see depicted on a three-dimensional planet Earth.
