The Street


This is an excellent attempt to demonstrate the concept of The Global Village to the elementary and even middle-school set. 'The Street' has five houses, each belonging to a family from a different country: Brazil, India, Ireland, Nigeria, and Turkey. Clicking on a house brings up a youth-oriented room with clickable links to "Instruments," "Food," "Religion," and "Listen" — which allows users to hear the music of that particular country. The basic idea is that no matter from where we derive, our interests are similar. Although the explanations are a bit simplistic, they will interest younger students and those for whom heavy reading is still a chore.
