Check out the section called "Faraway Places at Your Fingertips"
Each eight-page magazine (free online) and companion website (subscription) celebrates the culture, people, landmarks and geography of places around the world through photographs, maps, diagrams, charts, folktales, language and activities. (A must see for teachers teaching Social Studies!)
Includes a great section of teaching Resources K-6.
Current and Past Issues include the cover story in English and Spanish (Spanish teachers will appreciate easy-to-understand articles), mini lessons and comprehension guides. Worksheets are based on themes and skills and include charts, diagrams, maps, graphs, timelines. Word study skills include story maps, word study boxes for vocabulary and story boards. You could use the graphic organizers and templates with learners of all ages.
