Polar Regions' Location: Making Flag Markers

The activity involves creating a paper globe, which can be assembled around a Styrofoam ball or not, along with flags that will be used to locate the polar regions, Brazil, and potentially other countries and locations. Thus, each student will have their own globe, which can be used in various activities such as studying geographical coordinates, cardinal points, locating continents, hemispheres, rotation and revolution movements, or the seasons of the year, making the lessons more dynamic.
