Hover the cursor over any country and see a pop up of both a picture of the country's flag and a detailed description of the elements of the flag. The explanation includes a description of the visuals and the symbolic meaning of the graphics. Data for all "Charts Bin" features comes from reliable government and other statistical sources. At the bottom of the page, related charts that may be of interest show; use their links to continue the exploration. This site does include some advertisements.

In the Classroom

Use this site to find events occurring around the world. Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Research about many of these events to understand the history, culture, and background of the problem or event. Research other such events that may have occurred elsewhere in the world. Report findings using a blog, wiki, or through class discussion. Not comfortable with wikis? Have no wiki worries - check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through. Challenge students to find their own news stories and create a short multimedia project highlighting "the news" by creating a talking avatar using a photo or other image (legally permitted to be reproduced) to explain their news story that they researched. Use a site such as Blabberize (reviewed here).
