        I have an inflatable globe that look exactly like a beach ball. It allows the students to be hands on and depending on the class and how well the behavior is it can be fun by letting them bounce the ball to one another and could give you some options such as you give them the coordinates and they tell you where they are located or you could ask for the coordinates of where their right thumb is when they catch the ball. This help the audio and the kinesthetic learners in the classroom.
