The mission of Globe Trottin’ Kids is to engage kids in “learning about world geography and cultures, understanding and appreciating diversity in our world, and being kind, caring, and responsible global citizens.”  It is easy to click on various countries and learn about their statistics and culture.  There are photos, videos, infographics, links, and even a “Read Your World” section with book suggestions and resources!  I have been using this with one of the classes I teach and it has been so fun!
