EARTHVIEW (Click to see all text!)

On Friday 11/17, students in the 6th-grade Geography classes visited Earthview, a 20-foot inflatable globe.  The portable classroom traveled to Stoneham along with three professors from Bridgewater State College who were very knowledgeable and full of many interesting stories, personal accounts, and facts. The outside of the globe is a hand-painted, true to scale replica of the Earth’s surface.  Students were able to see the familiar continents, rivers, seas, landforms, oceans, major cities, from the outside.  However, once they stepped inside, everything was in reverse! While inside the globe students shared where their ancestors and family came from, truly demonstrating the diversity of the students here at the middle school.
