A set of models representing the continents. The model of Antarctica has been prepared in 2 versions – the one that shows the actual shape of the continent and the one with its actual depiction on the maps. Thanks to this the set could be used in various discussions.
The models could be especially useful during geography, science, early childhood education and history classes.
If you would like to get ideas and inspiration about using these models during your lessons please check out our Skriware Academy suggestions: “Explore the world map” lesson https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/63 and “How were the continents formed? Discover Pangea” lesson https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/64.
The set consists of 9 models, including 8 files for printing and 1 file which is meant to be used during the remote lessons.
If you want to print more copies of the selected item, you can use the multiplier in the slicer ("multiply model" function). Use the "+" and "-" buttons to set the desired number of models and the slicer will automatically place them on the worktop.

You can also use the models during a remote lesson by demonstrating them to students or by asking them to complete a practical task. For this purpose, you can use the Skriware slicer, Tinkercad or any other 3D viewer or editor.
