Pumpkin Globes

By October 22, 2019Uncategorized

The Upper Elementary 5th grade students worked in pairs to review and practice global geography skills while creating pumpkin globes! They engaged in a close study of a globe, and then were asked to locate and draw the oceans, continents, prime meridian, and equator to scale. Using natural materials, such as pumpkins, enhanced the sensory experience of the students as they navigated the varying bumps, ridges, and textures of their pumpkins, and they were subsequently reminded of the variations in the physical nature of our world. You may have noticed the globes on display at the Fall Festival!
