It would be nice to have a section for the many unique indigenous nations.24 votes
Have you considered putting a newsfeed on your site that would keep students informed of current events around the world?23 votes
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.20 votes
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 hope you guys consider my idea. I think it would be great for CultureGrams!

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.16 votes
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
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.15 votes
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.14 votes
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.14 votes
The National Parks CultureGrams
"The National Parks CulutreGrams"
I wonder if there could be a category for the National Parks.12 votes
Please add more information on all regions, since that is the primary way in which we teach world geography. We don’t have time to get down to the country level, except to use as examples.11 votes
It would be great if you could add more videos to CultureGrams.10 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
Human Rights info
We would like more information on human rights in each country, including the rights of women, LGBTQ people, minorities, etc.7 votes
States and Provinces infographics
Our students love the infographics that you have for the countries of the world. Could you add some for States and Provinces as well?7 votes
Add more interviews
I’m requesting the addition of more interviews. Also, if it’s possible, students would like to be able to listen to these interviews or watch videos of them.7 votes
Add French Guiana
We would like a CultureGrams Kids and World profile for the territory of French Guiana. We’ve noticed that while most profiles are of countries, there are some territories as well (Montserrat, U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, etc.), so reports on French Guiana would make the product more complete.7 votes
I think cultureGrams can be improved by including pictures/videos/people/info of life in the cities not just villages
