Product Description
(Note: Go to my shop on to get the same products at discounted prices. I am switching to that site because TeachersPayTeachers takes too much in fees and claims their income on my taxes.)

This activity guides students in studying how spherical the earth is. I would use this after students have already learned the term "oblate sphereoid," so that you can then use this to discuss with them How oblate is it? Students will do some simple calculations (basic ratios) to discover the relief that the highest and lowest elevations on Earth would have if the earth were shrunk down to the size of a (32cm diameter) classroom globe.
