We've Got the Whole World in our Hands

The whole fourth grade has been making papier mache globes.  This week, we will begin to paint them.  We have ordered acrylic paint, but it has not yet come.  If you have white acrylic paint at home that you would like to donate for this project, we'd appreciate it!  We'd like to have these globes out of our hands and hanging from the ceilings!
Creating globes allows students to get a handle on continents and oceans and their relative location.  After working on the globes, we'll move to flat maps and types of projections to atlas work, and then New Hampshire maps. Stay tuned...
