  1. Maps
    -- I taught about road maps using official highway maps of Ontario.
    -- Have students draw their own maps by copying continent maps on to paper that was already gridded with latitude and longitude lines.

    Films
    -- Many documentary and fiction films are excellent. I showed the movie Gandhi to my 8th grade world history class.
    -- This may sound silly, but my 7th grade world geography class learned more about Japan by watching Big Bird Goes to Japan than they had any other country just by reading about it.

    Newspapers

    Slides
    -- I had collected slides from my travels and showed 5 or 6 that illustrated our day's lesson.

    Historical fiction novels
