Most Usable Mounting for Educators! A globe is the best tool available for teaching geography. Unfortunately, most globe mountings only allow a student to locate places. The Horizon Ring Mounting allows a student to demonstrate distortion, find the shortest distance between two locations, and much more. For hands-on teachers, this globe is a must. The 12 inch Political Globe in Horizon Ring Mounting allows an unrestricted view of the Earth. This Political Globe shows thousands of locations and geographical features highlighted in bright contrasting colors. Oceans shown in blue. Clear, easy-to-read type.
