How old is your son? And how much time does he have to get this done?

Paper machè is a good suggestion. Use scraps of newspaper and white glue.
Method 1) Use a balloon and put the paper mache around the top and sided to get it mostly round. When it's dry, pop the balloon and mache over the hole where the balloon was tied.
Method 2) Wrap a soccer ball or basket ball with saran wrap. Mache over half, when that's dry, take it off and repeat doing another half, then mache the two halves together.

Once you have a round shape, mache another layer of white paper strips so you will be able to draw the continents, water, etc. on the outside.
