“Save the Earth is a sport-like activity that should leave a lasting impression on all its players. You will need a large field and a ball for this game, basketball-size or bigger. A strong, inflatable Earth globe is ideal, but any large blue rubber ball can be painted (green and brown for land masses, and white for swirling clouds) to resemble the Earth as viewed from space.”
