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 20 feet tall, this inflatable mobile classroom features satellite images of our planet that can be used to teach multiple concepts, such as:
- Water conservation and pollution
- Human impact on the planet
- Climates and habitats
- Human and animal migrations
- Map projections and time zones
- Geography, math, and meteorology
Lessons can be taught inside or outside of the balloon.
