National Geographic Online
by Alice Kurtz
PRODUCT REVIEWS column presents a favorable review of National
Geographic Online. Says it is a site that offers a cornucopia of
information, including excerpts from the latest magazines and video
and audio clips from its "National Geographic Explorer" television
program. States that teachers can find lesson plans for geopraphy,
as well as interactive expeditions to enhance classroom topics.
Notes that the highlight of the site is the Interactive Features
area that covers a wide spectrum of information, including
biographies of important figures such as Jane Goodall, details of
archeological discoveries, examinations of world locales, and topics
that support social studies curricular areas. Notes that because of
the comprehension required to work with the posted text, the site is
more appropriate for middle school students and above. Highly
recommended and rated four on a scale of one to five.
Includes one screen display, and a scorecard.
