Get an accurate bird's-eye view of our world's land and water with this three-dimensional relief globe! Land areas are raised to show mountains, plains, and valleys. Ocean surface is represented by a high-impact, clear plastic surface. Through the plastic, students can observe the textured surfaces of the continental shelf, basins, ridges, and trenches that make up the ocean floor. All continents, oceans, major ocean basins, ridges, and currents are named. Printing is on the inside-so the globe may be marked with a wax pencil to show additional currents, wind directions, routes, and more. Globe size: 12" diameter; sturdy plastic base and illustrated study guide included.
