  1. Hi all,
    We've teamed up with globe manufacturers Globee to give you the chance to win a Globee for your classroom.
    Globees are beautifuly illustrated globes featuring cities from around the world. You also get fact-packed booklets about the places depicted. The Globees come in three different sizes and we've got 10 medium sized Globees to give away (worth £19.95 each). You get to choose which city you'd like featured. The closing date for entries is Monday May 14 2012.
    Enter the Globee competition now
    Good luck

  4. They look snazzy but I cant help but think that as a teaching tool it will be pointless. Globes of the earth teach children about the shape of our planet - surely these are going to make children think that London is also spherical? Im just not sure its educational purpose has been thought through. A flat pictoral map may be more useful!
     
  5. Hi. Just read your comments about Globees and thought you'd be interested in feedback we've had from schools. Children play with balls of all shapes and sizes from a very young age - playing catch, throwing, rounders etc - and the idea of using a ball/globe that children touch and feel (and so learn) is a great way to extend learning in the classroom. London on a globe is a great way for children to twirl, discuss and learn about the capital rather than as a simple 2D feature. Globees are a great way for children to explore the city they live in and increase their awareness of their neighbourhood too.
    Hope that helps :)
