We have created 10 activities for teaching about geography using Times content, all related to the National Geography Standards.
This is a set of 10 activities that all use New York Times resources are all connected to the National Geography Standards and applicable to any social studies classroom. It's great to see geography getting this publicity in the NY Times, but it's fantastic to have these easy-to-use ideas for the classroom that are rich in content.
This is a superb site from the BBC with interesting questions to inspire awe and wonder. There are videos and other media which attempt to answer questions on history, science and much more. http://ictmagic.wikispaces.com/Cross+Curricular
I'm pleased to announce that for GIS Day, I created a map that has hyperlinks to regionally specific posts that I put on 'Geography Education.' This map was created using ArcGIS Online (here's a free tutorial on how to to use ArcGIS Online tailored for K-12 educators). This is just another way to search for materials on this site. Feel free to embed this map on your webpage or share the link. I'll add more tags in the future as well (just click on the icon to get a pop-up, then click on the image to see the posts). Happy GIS Day!
