Download a world map widget that uses Google Maps with Earth view.  Students can see the entire planet or zoom in for as much detail as possible.  As you can see in the video, within seconds, you can go from a view of the entire world to one specific location (like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York).  Since you can zoom in and out freely, you really only need the one map to cover anything you'd want students to see throughout the world.

"Have you ever had someone pass you their headphones to hear a song, and had your ears blasted by an outrageously loud volume level? Well, by default, anyone can crank the volume up on music played from an iOS device to 100%. That may sound like no big deal, but there are situations where listening to music that loud could potentially be problematic, leading to inattentiveness to the outside world or even theoretical hearing issues. This is particularly important for kids, who may not realize that the volume level is harmful. Thus, if you or your kids listen to a lot of music with headphones on from an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, you may want to consider setting a maximum volume limit for the Music app."
