Geography Resources, Maps, & Facts for Students

  • Geography is all around us. It’s what makes countries different – both in terms of landscape as well as in terms of culture. Geography is the study of where places are, but it's also the study of who lives in those places, what the places look like, and how those places developed, socially and geologically, into its modern form.
    Help kids get interested and excited about geography and about the world they live in with these helpful resources, which include geography games, interactive maps, and fun facts.

Time Rime
  • Make your own time line.
  • Directions: Create timelines for free online using TimeRime
  • Creating historical timelines is a great way to explain or teach someone about the history of a particular idea, concept, or object. Unfortunately, there simply is not that much software out there to quickly create professional looking timelines.
  • And usually, if someone is going to create a timeline, it’s probably a one-time project for school or work and so installing an application on your desktop is kind of overkill. That’s why I love the Internet because there everything can now be done online too!
  • TimeRime is a free service that lets you create cool-looking flash-based timelines online! It’s a timeline maker! It seems to be a pretty popular service already because I found many very useful and in-dept timelines about everything from John McCain to the birds nest stadium create for the Beijing Olympics.
