I am very proud of my kids being avid learners and wanting to branch out into a lot of different subjects from in science and social studies. This globe from Get Life Basics blends both subjects into an illuminating learning experience.
As it is the globe itself is 13” in circumference and sits 3” above its metallic stand which is covered on the bottom with felt to ensure smooth movement across furniture without any scrapes. The connecting stainless steel half-circle holder allows the globe to spin freely 360°. Coloring of the globe is based off topography and lists all the continents, countries, states, capitals and major cities with clarity and, from everything I have noted and checked, is correctly labeled. Includes all the land boundaries, oceans, lakes and rivers.
My kids have been ecstatic over the globe and have been looking up various answers as they move through the accompanying e-book that features puzzles, pictures and extra tid-bits of information.
The globe also came with a compass which I gifted to my daughter; my sons already had compasses. Rounding out all the extras are a USB cable and port adapter.
What are those for?
By day, this is a fine globe but, by night, it turns into an illuminating view of the southern and northern constellations. With built-in LED lights, it displays the stars’ Latin and common names plus, the planets in our own solar system.
My kids squealed with delight and set out to find all their favorites across the plastic surface.
The quality of this globe is exceptional and the learning possibilities make this a win in our book.
