Handmade Globes

First/second grade students recently completed a 3-day process to create individual paper mache globes.  First, students wrapped newspaper strips dipped in paper mache paste around balloons.  After the balloon spheres dried, students painted them blue.  On the third day, students glued paper continents in the (relatively) correct locations on their blue spheres.  They are hanging in our classroom now and they are beautiful!  Thanks so much to the parent volunteers who helped make this fun but messy project a reality.IMG_3233 2
