I have added some great links for students to investigate! One is Panwapa. This is a site produced by Sesame Workshop and is geared toward ages 4-8. It is a site that teaches about all the countries in the world. And quoting from their PDF it teaches an:
Awareness of a wider world
Appreciating similarities and valuing differences
Taking responsibility for one’s own behaviors
Community participation and willingness to take action
Understanding of and responsiveness to economic disparity.
In addition to all that it seems really fun! Watch a few videos on the site to get an idea of how it works.
Children need to sign up with a user name and password. The user name will say USA with a number following. Children do not give any personal information.
