This week (November 17-23) is the Geography Awareness Week, also called GeoWeek. National Geographic’s Education Section created a website to celebrate this event. The theme of this year is “how geography enables us all to be intrepid explorers in our own way”. The resources created for the previous Geography Awareness Week events are archived online. You may explore this rich educational collection by a search or use a combination of filters provided on the webpage.
