    Rec. Travel Library

    GRADE LEVEL:All Ages; Secular

    COMMENTS:This site gives "travel and tourism information with an emphasis on personal travelogues." As such, you will be taken sometimes to people's personal pages containing pictures and travelogues from their journeys. Be aware of this and visit these sites WITH your child. I visited Cameroon, Africa and got to see many lovely photos and even hear some sound clips of typical music for this country. All kinds of other TRAVEL TIP links are available at this site. A great virtual get-away!

    Home@nationalgeographic.com

    GRADE LEVEL: All Ages; Secular

    COMMENTS:An incredible site! Keep in mind that National Geographic has an evolutionary and humanistic perspective though. The best way to get around this huge site is by using the site index.

    I found a wonderful Kids section full of fun features, Games,"Now Try This" challenges, craft ideas and an educational Pirate Adventure Game. Kids can also read some of the articles contained in monthly issues of the National Geographic's WORLD for Kids Magazine...I read the one about "Dreams" which was fascinating.

    If you go to INFORMATION CENTRAL you can find encyclopedia-like articles (divided by subject) which appeared in various issues of the National Geographic.(They will tell you which edition if you want to follow-up.) XPEDITION HALL is a place you will want to visit too. Using Quicktime video, you can actually travel to the various expeditions and click on them for activities to do and articles to read.A side map shows where you are at any time in the hall and shows you directions you can go...good for teaching spatial relationships. This Hall is based on the STANDARDS educators have designed to teach geography.You can see what these STANDARDS contain too so that you can give your child a complete geography education. There is also a teacher section full of activities for children divided by grade level.

    Why not let your child try the daily GEO-BEE Challenge on this site?There are prizes to be won and things to learn. All-in-all this is a tremendous site...there is more here than I could ever summarize...I've just hit the highlights.Visit soon.
