East Elementary Globetrotters!

The Earth Dome visited East Elementary School students. “The Earth Dome is a gigantic inflatable earth balloon standing 19-feet high and 22-feet in diameter. It’s made of 24 huge panels silkscreened with photographs shot from satellites of the surface of the world on cloud-free days. It has been used extensively across the United States to educate students about geography as well as environmental issues,” courtesy of Mobile Ed Productions. Through grade level presentations, students were able to learn about concepts such as continents, landforms, time zones, latitude, longitude, and more! Even major cities in comparison to the total Earth was shared. Students were able to go inside the Earth Dome and view the continents and earth features from the inside looking out. Earth Dome was provided by the ESPTO.
