I would like to download this presentation to use with my first grade students. I plan on watching/listening to the author stream first and then using the downloaded presentation as a book in our social studies/science reading station.

We can fold a map and easily take it with us.

We can not fold a globe to take it with us.

Slide9: 

On a map, we can look down and see all places on Earth at the same time.

Slide10: 

On a globe, we can look down and see only some places at the same time.

Slide11: 

Maps can show our whole world. Maps can also show smaller areas like streets, neighborhoods, cities, counties, states, and countries.

Slide12: 

Globes do not show smaller areas. Globes will only show the land and water that make up our whole world.

Slide13: 

Usually maps are made of paper, which is easy to tear. Globes are made of paper and other materials that make it harder to destroy.

Slide14: 

Maps and globes are different tools. We can use them in different ways to find places on our planet, Earth.
