Models of Earth

English Class fourth graders have been learning geography in a very concrete way. Using a round balloon as a form and a paper mache technique of dipping strips of newspaper in a solution of water and white glue, pupils created their own models of earth.

Then pupils painted directly onto their own dried models. The concentration as they painted was palpable. From the models that resulted from their efforts as seen below, the project was a great success.
