EarthView globes are both fascinating teaching tools and delicate works of art.
EarthView 1 is a hand-painted, large-scale map of the Earth's surface, showing biological communities, rivers, seas, landforms, continents, islands, oceans, and major cities in vibrant colors.
EarthView 2 uses cloud-free, high resolution, satellite images from NASA, printed on a durable fabric marked with the equator and Tropics, largest cities and highest mountains.
The inside of both globes provides a two-story, portable classroom that reveals the positions of continents, islands, time zones and landforms relative to tectonic plate boundaries, and ocean spreading centers. All of the details on the outside of EarthView globes are visible during sessions inside the globe, though in reverse.
The EarthView Team is grateful to our colleagues at Littleton Middle School for preparing this one-minute video for viewers who have not yet seen the EV1 globe.

During the globe program, instructors will lead discussions on general topics such as biomes, scale, time zones, climate and climate change, hurricanes, and the operation of global positioning systems (GPS). Our instructors also have expertise in the tropical and Southern Hemisphere regions that are easily visible from the exterior: Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia.
