I’m continuing to create specific “The Best…” lists corresponding to the countries and regions we’re studying in my ELL Geography class.

You can see all them at The Best Geography Sites For Beginning & Intermediate English Language Learners.

Today, I’m in a little bit of a rush, so I’ll try to quickly pull together some resources on the United Kingdom (we’re studying it this week and then making a video with questions for a sister class there). I’ll be adding more, and invite others to make suggestions:

National Geographic For Kids — United Kingdom

Kids Ask Questions About England

Fact Monster United Kingdom

TIME For Kids — England

Visual Geography — United Kingdom

Manchester, England

Where To Next?

Wales

Project Britain

The view from the top of the Shard: London panorama of sights and sounds – interactive

Scotland

London At Night

The Little Red Hen — An English Folktale

Chicken Little — An English Folktale

Myths from England

Sounds of GREAT Britain is a very cool series of interactive videos that allow viewers to take a customized audio and visual tour of…Great Britain. It’s very creative. I’ve embedded the first video below…

The creators of the video also have a very engaging site called LoveWall – Visit Britain which provides excellent categorized images from around the country.
