CONTINENT GLOBE (individual presentation)
To teach the names of the large land masses and water bodies.
Invite a child to join you and show him where the globe is kept.
Have the child carry the globe with two hands to a table.
Say, “This is the Continent Globe.”
Use one hand to support the globe and rotate it with the fingers of the other hand.
Admire it visually.
Do one full rotation and on the second rotation give the language, “continent” for the colored portions and “ocean” for the blue portions. “This big piece of land is called a continent. This big body of water is called an ocean.”
Invite the child to have a turn.
Ask him to show you “continent” and “ocean”.
