EarthView Globes

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.


Reserve EarthView Globes

At this time we are not scheduling EarthView and floor map school visits.

If you have participated in Teacher Training through the EarthView Institute, and are a trained facilitator of EarthView programs, you may request a globe. If you have completed this training, and are borrowing the globe or floor maps, please complete and submit the EarthView Agreement Form.
