The Google Cultural Institute helps preserve and promote culture online
With a team of dedicated engineers, Google is building tools that make it simple to tell the stories of our diverse cultural heritage and make them accessible worldwide.
We have created this site to provide a visually rich and interactive online experience for telling cultural stories in new ways. Discover exhibits by expert curators, find artifacts, view photographs, read original manuscripts, watch videos, and more.

All About Explorers
All About Explorers was developed by a group of teachers as a means of teaching students about the Internet.
Although the Internet can be a tremendous resource for gathering information about a topic, we found that students often did not have the skills to discern useful information from worthless data.
So we set out to develop a series of lessons for elementary age students in which we would demonstrate that just because it is out there for the searching does not mean it is worthwhile.
Important Note
This is really a site designed to get students to question the authenticity of information on the web ... ask yourself if the info is true ... (check the teachers notes)

Explorers : 4 2 Explore
This web project provides "four to explore" for each topic.
On each page you'll find definitions, activities, 4 good starting points, and many more links and resources for the thematic topic.
In some cases, we've listed more than four websites on a particular topic. For example, we might provide a few for younger readers and others for more advanced learners.
Each school, classroom, and teacher is unique. As such we didn't try to provide specific activities for particular grade levels. Instead we suggest that teachers explore each link, then design specific, developmentally appropriate activities such as discussion questions, small group activities, or webquests to fit the needs of their curriculum.
The links on this site are safe for children.

Listen while the older members recount exciting true stories of explorers who have risked life and limb in the persuit of knowledge. Paddle down the Amazon with Percy Fawcett. Drive a dogsled to the North Pole with Peary and Henson. Go to a mysterious isolated island with the Burden Expedition to capture a living dragon. Risk an ancient Egyptian curse with Howard Carter as he opens the Tomb of King Tut.
