Letters From Afar

This subscription service sends a monthly letter describing the adventures of a fictional explorer. The letters are copies of hand painted/written originals, and addressed by hand. Looks like a very interesting way to learn about history and geography, and certainly affordable at $6/month.

Cultured Owl

These learning kits on different countries are designed to promote global citizenship. They contain information booklets, recipes and crafts, a flag and a toy from each country. Buy a single kit, or save money with a package and choose the countries you want.

Constitute

This incredibly useful site catalogs the texts of 192 different constitutions from around the world. You can compare texts on different topics, search for words and phrases, and filter by date. What a valuable tool for studying world governments!

All Sides

This website provides access to news content from all sides and attempts to evaluate biases. It's goal is to remove readers from their "filter bubbles", promote critical thinking, and fight polarization. It's a great resource for older students (and adults!) in these difficult political times.

Nation States

A free online simulation game. You create your own country and deal with daily issues. You can participate in the "Wold Assembly" or just keep to yourself. Looks like a great way to learn about governments and politics.
