Get on the UN’s Cyberschoolbus

United NationsThe 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.
