TERRITORIAL ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: Canada is home to more than 600 First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities, which represent more than 50 Nations and 50 Indigenous languages. We recognize and acknowledge the long and lasting traditions and spiritual connections of all Indigenous communities including the Attawandaron, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee who were the first stewards of the land where we work and live, and we commit to active reconciliation by promoting awareness and education.

Feel like changing things up? Flip your classroom and assign a video about a topic before starting it. Or, perhaps you are researching or home-schooling . . .

Crash Course Geography videos are great for all of these. They are well-produced and global in nature, with excellent graphics and detailed information. And, they are long enough - around 10 to 12 minutes - to get into a topic without it becoming a long documentary and short enough to use in the classroom to introduce a topic or provide some background.

Check out all 50 of the Crash Course Geography videos.

Don't forget, the Digital Atlas Project has a whole library of resources on dozens of Topics and Themes in Geography from hundreds of curated, credible sources. When you start planning a topic or unit, have a look here first!

These political, physical, and demographic maps, videos and visualizations will assist you with classroom work, remote learning, doing homework, completing projects, and preparing lessons. The resources on these pages cover many of the curriculum elements for middle years and high school in Canada and the United States, Key Stages 2 and 3 in England, Wales, and Scotland, as well as GCSE, IGCSE, A level, AP, IB MYP and DP students and teachers around the world.

Become a contributor! Students and teachers pour over thousands of websites, maps, and geography resources every day. If you find a public or creative commons map, diagram, or graphic that would help build a more complete online atlas, then please forward the link to the DigitalAtlasProject Team.
