    How do you get a student to interact with geography without getting on a plane? Make a game of catch-the-planet! There are a lot of games you can play with an inflatable globe. Toss it around and have the catcher answer a question about what is under their right thumb for example. Which hemisphere is it in? What are the coordinates? Identify the continent or ocean. So, when you have a blank white globe with black outlines, you have just upped the ante! Now the student has to identify or answer a question without seeing the names on the globe. Wouldn't that be a fun game of catch? Identify the nearest country to your left pointer finger, and then write it on with a wet-erase marker (not included)! Keep tossing until the entire continent, or whole globe, is labeled! Use for continents, countries, physical features, etc. More fun than plain old blank paper maps! Great for your kinesthetic, hands-on learners or wiggly kiddos. 24" diameter, ~ Sara

    This globe guides young children on an exciting interactive adventure to introduce geography basics. Like the original GeoSafari Talking Globe, it uses quiz games to familiarize children with geography. Two game modes and variable subjects allow children to learn geography with spoken and visual clues, then immediately quiz each lesson. Digital voice technology, sound, and music add entertainment and educational value. An illustrated 12" globe has just the right amount of detail and color-coding to make it fun and easy for young children to read. Features adjustable volume, question repeat, help button, lights, and sounds. Variable subject selection lets you focus learning on continents, countries, US states, or oceans. The simple, colorful globe and multiple-choice questions are perfect for beginning geography students. One to three players, requires four "C" batteries or an AC adapter (sold separately).

    This atlas from Rand McNally bridges the gap between simpler atlases geared to younger students and adult reference-only atlases. Like its adult cousins, this atlas is packed full of colorful maps and handy reference material; however, it also includes some student-friendly features such as charts/graphs, and narrative text. The atlas begins with an overview of map terminology. Next are sections on the earth/solar system, plate tectonics, climate, and other topics pertaining to physical geography. A twelve-page countries and flags of the world section presents basic information about 199 countries. Seven world maps are included: political, physical, climate, economic, population density, environments, and time zones. Detailed political and physical maps are provided for each of the seven continents and the U.S., plus thematic maps and select regional/country maps. Some examples of the continent thematic maps include: climate, population, environments/land use, or special topics specific to the continent (i.e. destruction of the rain forest in South America). Glossary and index included. 176 pgs, pb. Revisd in 2017. ~ Lisa
