  1. We would like the ability to log into Office 365 on Culturegrams and directly save to One Drive.

  2. Animals Edition

    It would be about all animals that live in the while. When you click the Animals Edition button, it would take you to a map. There would then be a exotic animals, insects, birds, warm blood, cold blood, and endangered animals buttons. For example, if you click the endangered animals button, it would take you to all the endagered animals. You click on one of them and then it would show where it is located in the world, the sound it makes, and abotu how many there are left. This would be about the same with the other animals. I…

  4. Search for countries by language

    As a teacher librarian, I promote CultureGrams to the world language teachers at my school. They often want students to do research on countries or people from countries where their target language is spoken. It would be very helpful for students to be able to search by language spoken. I think they would be surprised to see all the countries where French or Spanish is spoken.

  5. Newsfeed

    Have you considered putting a newsfeed on your site that would keep students informed of current events around the world?

  6. U.S. Colonialism and Government

    My teachers would use it more if there was greater alignment to the social studies common core for 4th and 5th.

  7. Charts & Graphs downloadable in other formats

    I do a lot of teacher trainings on how to use CultureGrams in the classroom. The teachers are very excited about having the ability to have their students create comparison charts and graphs. However, sharing their creations out is problematic. Would it be possible to add a feature so that charts and graphs could be downloadable in formats such as jpeg and png? CultureGrams is a statewide resources for our K-12 students, so I know this feature would be useful for many teachers and students in Iowa. Also, it would be helpful to have curriculum correlation with the Iowa Core…

  8. Make it easier to select countries during graph creation

    When creating a table, countries and attributes can be selected and de-selected using check boxes. When creating a graph, students have to use control-click to select choices. This is a real nuisance for kids using touch screens, and a stumbling block for everyone else. Can all country and attribute selection be made with check boxes? Thanks!

  9. Mexican States edition

    It would be great if you had a Mexican States edition, similar to the U.S. States and Canadian Provinces editions you already offer especially since the three countries are more closely linked today.

  10. Highlight text with read aloud and more images in each section, make it more visually appealing

    The text should be highlighted as it reads along, More images for each topic, make it more palatable for younger and struggling readers (ENL, ELL, etc.)

  11. Biographies/Famous People

    Will you please add a page for famous people and animals? My fourth grade students need this information for their research. Please note, I am not looking to duplicate the biographical databases. I am simply looking for a paragraph or two about famous people or animals. Of course, biographies would be welcome too.

  15. Languages other than English

    Have you considered making Culture Grams available in other languages (particularly Spanish?) There are some World Language teachers at my school who prefer their students to do research in the languages they're learning.

  16. Teacher resources

    It would be helpful if all teacher resources are placed on one page (i.e. things such as tools, teaching activities, and common core and other curriculum standards). Links in the Teaching Activities PDF would also be helpful.

  17. Include a quick-reference comparison to the US dollar in "Money/Economy"

    1) I like how the Kids Edition includes a link to "Money and Economy" - could the World Edition's "Economy" link also say "MONEY"? Some of my students switch between the two editions to find all their info.
    2) While I know not all users are in the United States, would it be possible to include a quick-reference within the Money link that shows how that country's currency compares to one U.S. dollar? My language teachers like to ask students to find that more often than extensive economic information.

  18. Holidays and Celebrations around the World

    It would be nice to have a section on holidays and celebrations around the world, and maybe even sorted out by month. This way they would be easy to compare instead of going country by country

  19. More audio files

    I noticed you have audio files that play foreign terms for some countries. It would be nice if you could add these to all of the countries.

  20. We would love for there to be citations generated for everything, like the maps, or the Did You Know? on the landing page...

    The maps and some of the information do not generate citations, so the students cannot cite the maps or the fun info on the main page.
