The Peace Corps Kids World site is an excellent resource for world geography lessons and research projects. The site offers a unique perspective on social conditions in developing countries around the world and provides information not available on other sites. Peace Corps Kids World also does a good job of encouraging children to get involved in community service projects on the Make a Difference Page. Play the Pack Your Bags game to find out what Peace Corps volunteers need to take with them when they go to different countries. This is a great site to help kids see our world from a global perspective.
