GeoSafari Talking Globe
by Charles Doe
PRODUCT REVIEWS column presents a favorable review of the GeoSafari
Talking Globe ($99) from Educational Insights of Columbia, TN (800,
310). Describes the product as a 12-inch globe with enough memory in
the base to store more than 10,000 questions. Says that the globe
uses advanced digital speech technology to "ask" questions and
provide answers. Relates that the electronics in the base turn the
globe into an electronic quiz game for up to four players, and the
questions cover topics from the location of continents and
countries, to the identification of latitudes and longitudes. Highly
recommends it for small group or individual work to reinforce
geography study in an upper elementary or middle school classroom,
and for supplemental, rather than primary, instruction.
Includes one photo and a scorecard.
