National Geographic Xpeditions

Xpeditions is home to the U.S. National Geography Standards—and to thousands of ideas, tools, and interactive adventures that bring them to life. All of the activities on Xpeditions were designed to meet the needs of people with different learning styles. The site is divided into Lesson Plans, Activities, Interactive Exhibition Hall, Atlas and K-12 Geography standards. Resources are easy to locate using the search engine and the maps are printable.
