Sanctuary, Marshfield -- July 20

N 42° 05' 50" W 70° 43' 45"
(including how to look them up by address)

The EarthView is very pleased to be part of the Sanctuary Day Camp at the Sanctuary congregation in Marshfield. Campers have been learning and celebrating many different things about the earth, its environments and peoples. Throughout the day, learners of all ages were able to use EarthView and our Hobo-Dyer-Mead south-up map to locate places they were interested in.
EarthView is a physical map; it works well in combination with the
 Hobo-Dyer-Mead map from ODT Publishing.
One of the places we mentioned to campers is the city of Macapá, the capital of the State of Amapá, Brazil. It is a city that is located where the Equator meets the Atlantic Ocean. Famously, its main soccer (football) stadium (Milton Stadium Souza Corrêa) is positioned so that opposing teams are in opposite hemispheres, with the centerfield line at 0 degrees latitude!

EarthView Team Travels

The three permanent members of the EarthView team are geographers with a passion for exploring the world through maps, globes, movies, books, articles, food, and conversation. Together we have spent more than a CENTURY in the classroom teaching of geography, where we learn from our students, as we do with each EarthView visit. Just traveling with EarthView itself gives us more ways to explore the world, mostly the small but fascinating corner of it we find in Massachusetts.

Another way we are fortunate to have learned geography is from visiting or even living in other countries. The maps below are our "life lists" of international experience, and for all three of us, the list is growing steadily.

Many of the students who visit us in EarthView we born in other countries, or have parents who were. The chances are fairly high that one of the EarthView team members has been to those home countries, or perhaps speaks the language.

Dr. Hayes-Bohanan has the shortest list so far.
