Wow I've been away for awhile, but need to share a cool, albeit indirect geography site!!
MSN Live Search engine--now renamed and redesigned as BING search engine-- has an incredible geography based website!! Each day the BING website background picture changes. The photos are of beatiful locations/cultures/people/cities all over the world. The great thing is that as you scroll over the background picture, little bits of info about the site pop up with additional links that tell about the city, place, culture, etc!!
This could be used everyday as a geography "class starter" activity to get the kids settled down and focused on your geography subject...You could even use the pop up bit of information as a kind of quiz or subject starter.....ENJOY!!!!!!
