There’s nothing like a vivid image to make an impact on people, and there’s also nothing like the Keep Roswell Beautiful Earth Balloon. At 22 feet tall and 22 feet wide, this inflatable mobile classroom features satellite images of our planet that can be used to teach multiple concepts, such as:
- Geography, math, and meteorology
- Map projections and time zones
- Climates and habitats
- Human and animal migrations
- Water conservation
- Human impact on the planet
Lessons can be taught both inside and outside of the balloon!
Teachers can choose to present lesson material on their own with help from an accompanying curriculum guide or arrange for Roswell’s Environmental Education Specialist to lead the class. For schools within Roswell city limits, the Earth Balloon is FREE; contact Vicki Culbreth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-641-3742 for details.
