Social Studies Craftivity - 3D Globe Craftivity
Make Social Studies come alive with this fun 3D biography craftivity. This globe craftivity can be used to help students study and learn the continents and oceans of the world.
There are two different views of the world map: the Western hemisphere and the Eastern hemisphere. This craftivity first has the students coloring the globe outline, then labeling the continents and oceans, equator, and tropic lines, then locating major cities, including the city in which students live.
There are two different sizes included in this resource – one on full sheets and one on half sheets if printing copies is limited at your school. Print only the set you need (the questions / directions are the same for both). Students will finish the labeling and coloring (6 pages in total) before assembling the finished globes (assembly instructions included).
I have also included a blank map outline for each hemisphere so you can add your own question, or have your students come up with their own question. Blank outlines can also be used as a cover in case you wish to assemble the globes into a flipbook style, rather than a 3D craftivity.
A rubric is also included for formative or summative assessment.
Completed craftivities are a fabulous way to decorate your classroom or bulletin boards. It’s a great way to have your students build a display they are proud to share. These globes would look fabulous lined up along a shelf.
You have three different options for printing (you want your globes to be sturdy enough to stand on their own):
- Print on white construction paper
- Print on cardstock
- Print on regular paper, then glue onto construction paper and cut out around the globe shape
For easier completion, be sure students complete each page BEFORE they assemble (cut and glue) the craftivity.
