C'est Magnifique! Find out all about the most famous landmark in Paris. There's lots of information on the tower itself, a virtual tour, and a panoramic view from the top. This is certainly a nice way to introduce French geography and culture. The site incluea a section for kids and a quiz. Note: to read in French, click the French flag. Some of the interactive tour portions require a special Active X plug-in. When prompted, you will need to install these.

tag(s): france (40), french (88)

In the Classroom

This is definitely a site to share on a projector or to allow students to explore on laptops or in a lab. Give them some questions to answer and send them "touring."

This page from an Islamic software company includes teacher information, along with links to activities, software, and many other related Islamic topics. This page isn't explicitly for non-Muslims, so some of the content may require a little study or research. There's lots to see, though.

tag(s): holidays (147), ramadan (10)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the discussion questions and classroom activities that the site has put together! This could definitely benefit a World History I teacher in charge of teaching students about various world religions. Be sure to save the site as a favorite to allow for easy retrieval later on.

This site from CNN offers a look at internal and international issues affecting China, considering everything from the rise of a new middle class to the ecological impact of a new dam to the future of relations with the United States. While there's plenty of history here, the focus is clearly on how China fits into the current world order. Beautiful design and artwork!

tag(s): china (66), chinese (48)

In the Classroom

Save this as a favorite and use it as a learning center or station during a unit on modern china. This activity works best if students have a graphic organizer to guide them through all of the information. If in need of help with the guide, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here). This would be a great resource for a World History or US government class.

This site from the Chinese National Tourism Office provides very general information on the features of China's various regions, paying particular note to places interesting to tourists. Despite the lack of detail, there's more than enough here to get a sense of the variations in China's geography, cultures, and history.

tag(s): virtual field trips (48)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on the interactive whiteboard or projector during a unit on China, modern or Ancient since most of the spots mentioned have historical significance stretching over centuries. Allow students to explore the site on their own with the intentions of creating their own travel brochure based on this website and previous knowledge of Chinese history. Making sure that student projects are connected to historical content, projects can be as easy as paper brochures to as complex as video commercials. If using a video-based project,have your students make their own ads based on the videos and radio transmissions they can view here. Share the videos using a tool such as Teachers.TV reviewed here.

This site is a photojournal of a tour through the Chinese countryside, noting the ways in which local "farmers' markets" contribute to the vitality of an otherwise centralized Chinese economy. Interesting for its purely local and village focus, as well as for the photos showing what life in small Chinese villages really looks like.

tag(s): china (66)

In the Classroom

Use the images from this site to contribute to a class visual discovery based on the economic situation of China. Most of the images are representative of the free markets thriving in major cities, making it easy to compare and contrast with what students have seen in the US. Select 3-5 of the more stimulating images, placing them in a powerpoint presentation. Show students the slides via interactive whiteboard/projector, with students writing down what they can observe & infer about each image. After the display is complete, have a class discussion based on student findings. This would be a great review activity, allowing students to apply classroom knowledge on what they're viewing.

Visit the New Orleans-based museum all about World War II via the web site and its various interactive components. While some areas (videoconferences) are fee-based, and some feature information about visiting the actual museum, there is a rich collection of information and multimedia experiences to make world war II history meaningful. Find lesson plans at the left under "Teachers." Click WWII History button at the right to find many pages of information and a timeline. Don't miss many choices under Student Projects. The See and Hear menu (up top) offers more interactive options, such as a newly re-launched Science and Technology of World War II interactive with additional lesson plans included.

tag(s): d day (8), veterans (19), world war 2 (142)

In the Classroom

This site could be the focal point for an extensive unit on World War II, with different student groups investigating aspects of the war. Or feature this site during a single lesson on D-Day. Ask students to decide which technology depicted in the science and technology interactive was the most important factor in the outcome of the war. Share videos on your projector or interactive whiteboard, or assign students to create their own online posters about different facets of World War II using GlogsterEDU reviewed here.

The Library of Congress has created a mini-portal to a large collection of information pages loaded with demographic, cultural, and statistical information on less well-known nations. Nearly all of the information is intended for older audiences. Nonetheless, this is a really rich resource of high quality (though sometimes dated) information for country reports.

tag(s): countries (76)

In the Classroom

Use the country profiles as activators or introductory activities to a lesson on a specific current event. Before students are able to understand happenings of today, it can be beneficial to provide them with a greater context, as seen here. To create a multimedia presentation with the information, have students use a mapping tool such as Mapskip (reviewed here) to create a map of local landforms (with audio stories and pictures included)!

Many of the documents and images are in the public domain and can therefore be used as visuals in other multimedia projects created by teachers and students. Be sure to read the permissions. Share an image on your projector or interactive whiteboard or a voice recording to start a lesson. Assign students to explore and explain collections you select. Be sure to check out the self-directed professional development modules, as well.

BBC's report on the 50th anniversary of Communism in China

tag(s): china (66)

In the Classroom

Although too outdated to be a current event's piece, this site could be used to study the ever-evolving nature of the Chinese government. Compare the reports on economic and social freedoms to those found elsewhere detailing those same rights today. Over the interactive whiteboard,use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here) to compare and contrast the two environments. This would be a great resource for a government or international politics class.

This children's site from the Mexican government introduces Mexican history, culture, and customs in Spanish, ideal for beginning to intermediate Spanish students. This is the Spanish version, and the link to the English version is not working. TeachersFirst has reviewed the separately. Some of the additional historical information could also be used for middle school studies of national histories. The site could also be used in conjunction with study of the American southwest.

tag(s): mexico (34)

In the Classroom

Immerse your Spanish students in the culture of Mexico, knowing that there is the backup of the English version of the site if they become frustrated with the language. Let students work with a partner on laptops or in a lab to find out key characteristics of Mexican culture and history, then have them prepare a Mexico "Tour" presentations (or have the entire class create a "tour" wiki) for teens who play to visit there. They will be glad to address an "older" audience than this site does!
