The United Nations Cyberschoolbus website is a great resource for parents, teachers, and others interested in teaching children about other cultures.
The website includes:
- Facts and information about UN member nations;
- An online child art gallery;
- Interactive games to teach children about water conservation and forestry;
- News and information about issues facing children around the world;
- And basic UN information.
Although not everything is appropriate for every child – I would not share the child soldier information with elementary school children, for example – there are great resources for parents and educators to test-drive before going online with kids.
