Discovery Atlas: Interactive Map with Videos

Discovery's new interactive atlas is a great resource for teaching about geography, countries, and cultures.  Select a country by clicking on it or selecting it from the drop down box.  The atlas has the feel of Google Earth as you fly to the location and zoom in.  Once the country is located, the user can choose to learn about that country's culture, government, history, and natural world.  Clicking on these categories will open various streaming videos that explain or show facts about the country.

Thanks to Suzanne Whitlow-ITRT for sharing this site on her blog.
