CIA WORLD FACTBOOK
Another marvelous and FREE geography resource for teachers and students is (CIA's) The World Factbook. These materials (used to be available in print), can be downloaded at the above website.
From their website:"The World Factbook is no longer available in a print edition. The CIA has made a decision to focus Factbook resources exclusively on the World Wide Web online edition, which is updated with new material every two weeks. Please look for the newly redesigned Factbook website coming in spring 2009. "
