Look at the map and globe above. Think about ways that maps and globes are different.


Maps are flat. They are long and look like a rectangle. On maps, we can see length and height. long (length) tall (height)


Globes are not flat. Globes are not long. Globes are round spheres that look like balls. They look like the real Earth. long (length) tall (height)


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


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


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


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


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


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


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.


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