comment Why can't you flatten a sphere?
Technically you can flatten a sphere, you can flatten a Calabi–Yau manifold but it's not trivial, however to a 10 year old I would say this is easy, Take an egg. Show him the egg and ask him to flatten it without breaking it. This will reinforce his understanding of the volume of the sphere and when enough force is exerted on a subject it will react just as with the cause and effect of everything else. He can see the small pieces and then understand how it is still spherical just in a bunch of pieces which make it seem flat.
