ProjectExplorer is a website for virtually taking students around the world. They are videos that you can watch separated by grade level. They recently won a 2010 Edublog Award which is how I discovered their site. The idea behind PorjectExplorer is "To foster the next generation of global citizens by encouraging awareness of the world beyond a student’s own community through the creation, production, and distribution of engaging and free multimedia educational materials." You can currently explore Mexico, Jordan, and South Africa. A great addition to classroom geography lessons.
