The full question is:
Why is a globe more accurate than a flat map in representing the earths surface?

What happens when you try to flatten an orange peel?

You have gaps at the ends. A flat map compensates for these gaps by either extending these areas or leaving gaps in the map.

We did peel an orange. What a great visual!! Would not have thought to do that! Thank you so much!

You're very welcome.
