Introductory Country Videos
Many of my students are new English Language Readers & Listeners. I am not certain that my students understand the Kids' edition. It would be nice to have a short (<5 minute) video introducing the country as well as some pertinent & popular information. This could be done for the country as a whole as well as by individual sections.

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.16 votes

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.9 votes
