Geography Resources

  • Atlas and Countries
    Go to the ATLAS and COUNTRIES links at the top of the page and especially the menu at the left. The countries’ links are current and should provide enough background information for ELLs to gather enough basic information to be able to move beyond and produce a quality project in the end.
  • The World of 100 People
    This is a real discussion starter. If the world were reduced to 100 people, only 9 would speak English. Check out the other suprises here! Your students will enjoy this eye-opening experience.
  • Earth Pulse Quiz
    I can picture cooperative learning games here as each team tries to earn points by being the first to get the correct answer. This looks like a wonderful tool to add relevancy to subject matter.
  • National Geographic
    Everything a teacher could ever want for geography is here…including video!
  • CIA – The World Factbook
    Quoted directly from the site “The World Factbook provides information on the history, people, government, economy, geography, communications, transportation, military, and transnational issues for 266 world entities. Our Reference tab includes: maps of the major world regions, as well as Flags of the World, a Physical Map of the World, a Political Map of the World, and a Standard Time Zones of the World map.”
  • World Atlas Not only do you find the expected data on countries, continents, and flags, but also time zones and currency values.
