CIA Resources for the Classroom
Did you know that the Central Intelligence Agency has a site that is great for classroom use? In addition to maps and pictures of flags, The World Factbook gives updated information about the history, government, economy, and other issues for "267 countries or entities." For me it is a good replacement for the set of encyclopedias I started my teaching career with. (Yes, I have been teaching a while.)
As someone who enjoys spy novels, I probably like the idea of using spy resources more than I should.
Update: Here is a graphic organizer for a country report.
