Making Planet Globes


2015-04-08

p>Arts and crafts time! Ever wish you could put together your own model of Europa or Venus? Now you can, as PDS, NASA and USGS provide you and your kids some printable maps that can be taped or glued together. I was thinking of using a 12 inch ball to give my globe some strength. Looks like a fun afternoon to me!
