Geography class always took place in a hot and stuffy room in the upper region of the science building at my school. The only thing that kept us from falling asleep was our eccentric teacher who insisted on using herself as a human protractor by laying on the desk and using her arms and legs to show the various angles. We never forgot that particular topic.
As mentioned in my posted On the Map, I have a thing for maps. I was never much for globes growing up, probably because we never had one at home, but I’ve found a new appreciation for them as I get older. After seeing this video it’s kind of hard to not appreciate them when you realize how much work goes into making one- that is if you make one by hand.
