The Earth Dome (AKA The Earth Balloon)
Discover geography on a scale you never thought possible!
Mobile Ed Productions is pleased to bring you the newest in educational technology. The Earth Dome is a gigantic inflatable earth balloon standing 19-feet high and 22-feet in diameter. It's made of 24 huge panels silkscreened with photographs shot from satellites of the surface of the world on cloud free days. It has been used extensively across the United States to educate students about geography as well as environmental issues.
This all day format features nine half-hour assemblies in which 35 to 45 students (depending on grade level) and one teacher will have a presentation both outside as well as inside the balloon. They will see and better understand the scale of concepts such as continents, time zones, latitude, longitude, and more! Even major cities in comparison to the total earth will be recognized. These topics are presented to each class at the appropriate grade level. Although, the visit to The Earth Dome is just a 30-minute assembly, seeing and understanding the Earth as it appears from space, as opposed to painted globes or drawings, is an experience not soon forgotten.
Small Earth Dome for California!
The Earth Dome is now updated with a special balloon made for schools that only have limited ceiling height. The new dome is 12 feet in diameter and 10 1/2 feet tall. This new dome has been assigned for schools in Southern California, given these are areas that have limited gym or low ceiling multi purpose rooms. Due to the smaller size of the Earth Dome, students will not be able to go inside of the balloon but will still receive the same strong content.
It has the same high quality photographic print as the larger earth balloon and all of the value, only smaller so it will fit in your facility. Please call your representative for more information and schedules in your area. This will fill up fast!
