“The Earth is what we all have in common.”- Wendell Berry.
Long ago, many people believed the world was flat. Explorers who loved geography-studying the earth eventually proved it was round. As people learned more and more about what the world looked like, they shared this knowledge with everyone by making globes.
As a project, the Grade 6 Geography class created globes with all seven continents and four major oceans. Creating an earth model is a fun, hands-on way to learn all about our planet, understand it more, and develop an appreciation of geography.
We were so impressed with their creativity!
