Kids Around the World uses the Internet to introduce elementary school-age children in the United States to the lives of children of the same age in developing countries around the world. Kids Around the World achieves these goals through:
•audio clips of children answering questions that are of interest to children of the same age;
•transcribed interviews that are also translated into English;
•images of the “kids around the world” in their daily activities;
•links to background information about each of the countries; and
•lesson plans and booklists for teachers to use in integrating all these resources into their curriculum.
