Around the World - Interactive Map of Newspapers - Wow!

 Newseum is an interactive website that brings you the front page of more than 800 newspapers from 80 countries.  

              Keeping it simple
    • Website should open with a map of the US
    • If you want maps from other countries, click a tab.  You'll travel anywhere from North America to Oceana to Africa.
    • Click a pin and the "hometown newspaper" front page for today will open. 
      • You can read from the site, print the page, create a PDF, or click to go to the newspaper's website. 

Give it a try!  How do you use maps, geography, news, journalism, foreign languages, reading & writing, or tourism in your curriculum?  This site has many possibilities to support your curriculum (educator resources) and I also see this as a tool to support the home/school connection.  Get your students to share it with their parents/guardians.
Check it out and let me know how you use Newseum.
