Product Description
This is a silly and fun review game of important lines of latitude, i.e. the Arctic Circle, the Equator, etc. Be sure that you are working with a class that knows and trusts each other well enough to play a game where they are touching and who knows how to act appropriately.

(Before the game: I usually cut out the cards and place them in envelopes the night before. I also have students (either in homeroom or in the class prior) help me place 15 1-inch pieces of tape on every other desk in each group. Half of the class should have tape.)

Students pair up and receive an envelope. They are instructed to tape the latitude line on their partner's body, i.e. the North Pole should be taped to my partner's forehead, etc. The partner has to show me their body, A.K.A. globe, before switching partners. I take a lot of pictures during this game.
