Uses for Globes for Kids & Students
While world globes make great decorative items for the home, classroom or office, they are also useful educational tools that help engage students and kids alike in world affairs and geography. The useful thing about desktop globes is that they can inform while also entertaining. Anyone who has seen a tabletop globe in a room, knows that it works much like a magnet. People, especially kids, are immediately drawn to the world globe and captivated by its natural charm. As a result of its engrossing appeal, young ones and old people alike learn while they’re spinning the globe, discovering new locations and fostering a deep passion for our world.
There are three main educational world globes that we offer. The Voyage globe is for younger kids. With illustrations of animals and various vehicles and landmarks across the globes, it gives children an immediate entry point into the geographic value of our planet. There is also the Expedition Interactive world globe, that comes with a Ting pen. Intended for kids slightly older than the Voyage, the Expedition tabletop globe gives geographic information by touching the pen to the sphere’s surface, encouraging engagement with the model. Lastly, we offer the Student Marco Polo globe, which would be best for kids in high school or college. Our most information rich world globe, this globe gives astronomical information about the earth’s rotation and relation to the sun, making it perfect for students with an inclination towards either geography or astronomy. Consider any of these options to inspire a love of our globe with these educational desktop globes.
