Project Explorerer - Free Films and Virtual Tours

Project Explorer produces free educational films and virtual field trips for students in elementary school through high school. Right now it appears that most of the content is focused on South Africa, Jordan, and Shakespeare's London. The videos in each unit seem to have a strong focus on culture. The educators section of Project Explorer offers lesson plans to accompany the units on South Africa, Jordan, and Shakespeare's London.

Applications for Education
Project Explorer could be a good resource for virtual field trips and videos of the places listed above. The cultural focus of the units make Project Explorer a good fit for use as part of a global studies lesson.
