Hands-on Geography

Help me give my students the hands-on learning by placing an inflatable globe in their hands as we learn about geography and the many cultures and experiences around the world.

My Students

My students come from a low socioeconomic level with our population being approximately sixty-five percent African American, twenty-five percent Hispanic and ten percent Caucasian. My students live in rural areas as well as within our small city limits; however, parents are often unable to provide the materials that students need day to day to become effective learners. Most of my students lack computer access and/or Internet access at home. Many of my students do not have study materials available at home. Having access in class to materials that they can hold in their hands, can be invaluable.

My Project

In my class, we don't just learn about history. We explore it and the areas of the world. History is just mere facts unless you can see the world in which it happened. My students often cannot understand how Hawaii is so close to Japan (Pearl Harbor attack during WWII), or how close Russia's border is to Alaska. Wall maps are fine, but it would be nice for students to be able to reference these locations by having a globe in their hands and having them locate the places while learning about them.

Last year I purchased a few of the inflatable globes that students could use in groups.

It amazed me how students were fascinated with hands-on learning. By having them trace the paths of explorers, locate important battle locations and helping them to locate the equator and the countries near it, they become more familiar with our world.
