Create a 12-sided, 3D globe to display research information about life on one of earth's continents.
Students research the continent of their choice to learn about its land forms, resources, climate, industry, agriculture, history, and wildlife. Collect facts and pictures about life on the continent.
To create a globe, use a compass and Crayola® Colored Pencils to draw 12 circles with a diameter of approximately 5 1/2 inches (14 cm). Within each circle, draw a pentagon, with each line measuring about 3 inches (7.6 cm). Each point of the pentagon must touch the sides of the circle. Cut out the circles with Crayola Scissors.
Using colored pencils and/or Crayola Crayons, color the background of each pentagon in soft, light colors. Write important information about the continent on each of the 12 pentagons. Include illustrations of items such as maps, birds, insects, animals, housing, and crops.
To assemble the globe, fold all five lines on each of the 12 pentagons upward. Place one circle face down, resting on its edges. Attach one edge from each of five more circles to it with a Crayola Washable Glue Stick. Continue to join the edges until six circles are connected, forming one-half of a ball. Make another half-ball in the same way with the remaining six circles. Attach the edges of the top half to the lower part of the globe.
