Globe vs. flat maps

Trying to illustrate to the children how a globe and flat map differ.
A globe is a 3d type map. Since it is shaped like the earth it is easier to show
the relation of the continents etc.

So for this example I drew some continents on the orange.
Then I sliced the orange up and laid out the pieces in a flat arrangement.
