In honor of Geography Awareness Week, why not spend a few minutes watching this short video -- How Globes Are Made.
Provided by the Chicago History Museum, it shows exactly what goes into the manufacturing of a globe, and might just answer questions you've always wondered about.
Geography Awareness Week is sponsored annually by National Geographic Society. The goal is to promote geographic fluency in schools and communities across the United States and Canada, and to this end, they provide an array of interesting geography and map-related ideas and activities. Students, teachers, parents, professionals . . . there's something for everyone!
