Resource: Country of the Week


Can your students find Portugal on the map?  If you’re looking for a quick online “do now” activity that highlights world geography and global cultural diversity, then check out the New York Times Learning Network’s “Country of the Week” interactive quiz.  As students answer quiz questions on geography, music, sports, and other topics, additional information and resources appear (whether the student answers correctly or not), including photos, text, videos, and additional links.  A great way to have an activity lined up that not only refreshes students’ knowledge of world geography, but introduces them to the rich culture and history of a new country each week.
