Day and Night

EDU-37502The best way to teach how day and night on earth works for young (and some older) students is to show it. Elenco’s Night’n Day Real Solar Time Rotating Globe can do it and serve as a solar calendar and clock as well. The secret is inside the 11-inch world globe is a light that in conjunction with a geared mechanical clock underneath rotates the globe over the day and night, showing where it’s dark and where it’s light. It’ll take some concentration to put it together but the Night’n Day globe comes with a lot of teaching aids, including a map of the world time zones, a glossary of terms and a way to teach about orbits and eclipses. It costs $130.
