Laura Sacco

Second-grade students embarked on an exciting in-house field trip to 'The Earth Balloon' as part of their year-long World Map study. Since the beginning of the academic year, these young explorers have been immersed in geography, gaining a solid understanding of the seven continents and the oceans that connect them.

The trip's highlight was the students' amazement at the sheer size of the 'Earth Balloon' and their delight in discovering they could enter it. They started their journey by walking around the inflated globe, examining satellite images of the continents up close. Each student, having studied a specific country individually, eagerly pointed out its global location.

Entering the Earth Balloon itself was an unforgettable experience. Inside, the space seemed larger than anticipated, sparking excitement and genuine curiosity among the students. They were eager to share their knowledge of continents, gain new information, and learn fun facts.

The trip was a fun day and deepened the students' understanding of global geography in an engaging and memorable way.
