Rotate the Earth using the arrows on the globe that show the direction of rotation. As viewed from the North Pole, what direction is the Earth spinning? clockwise or counter-clockwise?

I suggest you do this exercise in class, since that globe apparently has arrows that show the direction of rotation.

counterclockwise

counterclockwise

what are features of globe?
