For teachers, there are lesson plans, a geography glossary, and other items; they also can view a list of activities that correspond with Common Core Standards. The site's page organization could benefit from some additional ways of dividing up content; you can search by location, keyword, or subject, but the long list of topics on many of the pages can make scanning for subjects or meandering difficult. Still, kids and adults should enjoy getting quick hits of information from the site's interactive maps and other resources; Maps101 presents an impressive amount of information in an interesting, engaging way.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
