ABC40 Honor Roll – A Lesson Gone “Global”

Chicopee, Mass (WGGB)- Local 5th and 6th graders paid a visit to Elms College earlier this week for a real life Geography Lesson. Professor Vernon  Domingo from Bridgewater State University has been traveling around the state for the past five years with his portable classroom, in the form of a 20 foot high physical earth.

Forty-two thousand students have stepped inside the globe over the past 5 years and their up close and personal encounter with the sixty-nine pound, inflatable globe keeps most kids in looking in awe.

Professor Domingo says they use the globe to educate the kids about different cultural and physical features and how the we are all interdependent.
