Our new inflatable globe is perfect for this hands on geography game for kids! We love to plan active ways to learn so this gross motor activity definitely was a big success for us.

We've all wanted a globe for awhile, but we knew that a traditional one would likely sit on a shelf gathering dust and taking up space most of the time. An inflatable globe ball though sounded perfect for our active hands-on learning family!
We've recently been discussing the continents so we played a game where we would toss the ball to someone. They would have to name the continents (or oceans) that their hands were touching when they caught the globe.
For a simpler version, kids could identify if they were touching land or water. Our daughter loved showing her preschooler brother the blue water versus the colorful countries. A more advanced version can challenge students to name the countries they touch as they catch the globe.
