Here's one for the armchair adventurers. This site offers an interactive trek to the summit of Mount Everest. Along the way, it explains the culture of Nepal and the Himalaya region, and the impact that increasing numbers of western climbers have had on that culture. The tour is available in both html and Shockwave versions; the Shockwave tour requires a fast connection and lots of memory, but it's worth the wait.

tag(s): field trips (12), mountains (13), virtual field trips (48)

In the Classroom

Use the interactive tour as a learning center or station during a unit on the Himalayas. To assess student learning, have students use a mapping tool such as Mapskip (reviewed here) to create a map of local landforms (with audio stories and pictures included) - allowing them to recreate their own hike.

This site offers historical, cultural, political, and travel information about Malaysia. The reading level may be a bit high for some middle schoolers, but the site could be a great source of research information for studies of other cultures and peoples.

tag(s): asia (73), religions (61)

In the Classroom

Use the historic timeline to study the spread of Islam to Malaysia and the rest of South East Asia during the 15th century. The timeline is extremely detailed and can actually be used as a learning center or station too. To help guide students through the content, we recommend creating a graphic organizer. For help making those, try Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

This site offers a thorough and graphically well-designed introduction to the history, cultures, and 20th century politics of India and its neighbors. While a bit text-heavy, visuals support most of the sections, and the content could be useful for research projects or general information. The site includes a short biography of Mahatma Ghandi. This is a "labor of love" site created by two faculty members at UCLA.

tag(s): india (36)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit studying India. This activity works best if students have a graphic organizer to accompany the information - we recommend a tool such as Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).
