In this project, a novel method to create a physicalization of Digital Earth was tested by students in Australia, who shared insights into how the model supported their learning about the concept of “overlay” while providing an interesting and engaging learning platform. This study offers insight into the preferences of school children for physicalization models in geography education and contributes to the physicalization and tangible interactions field by providing an understanding of children's spatial thinking and understanding of the overlay concept.
