Works for me Wednesday: Geography Lessons

There is a middle school associated with my church (home schooled kids who meet together a few times a week), and recently the woman who teaches it was asking if I knew of any place to get good country-profile information. Their class is helping a non-profit in with a project in Kenya, but she didn't have any good resources for them about what it was like in Kenya, or compared to other countries in Africa. I know of several great ones!

I sent them to her, and thought I'd offer it to the WFMW crowd...hopefully it can be helpful in learning geography and about life in other parts of the world.

  1. The Library of Congress has a number of great country profiles that are really long - Kenya's was 22 pages long! They seem to include a bit more history than others.
  2. The CIA World Fact Book has tons of information about every country. They also include maps.
  3. The UN site also has very useful information; I especially think they have great, detailed maps.
