ulobe (An actual
globe)
All ages I'm often amazeu at how
fascinating I finu using a
globe to be. I took an
intensive geogiaphy class
in college anu I still think,
"that place is locateu
`W^W I think you can uo
a lot with a globe in teims
of lessons on geogiaphy
anu longlat
Theie can be a
limitation on the sheei
amount of globes you
can finu. You can
boiiow some fiom
othei teacheis, but
you might still not be
able to finu enough foi
each stuuent to have
one. Theie can be
issues with shaiing
anu taking tuins if
theie aie not many to
go aiounu.
