Russia - Where is the best geography?

The Ural mountains, Russia, by Flickr user Maxim Panteleyev, shared under a Creative Commons license.

Introduction

The inclusion of countries as part of the National Curriculum provides both opportunities and challenges. This list of web sites based on place and topic provides a wide range of themes to investigate when studying Russia. The extent of Russia provides a wide range of examples and opportunities for sample studies. The sites on this page have been carefully selected but as always it is important to check them before they are used in the classroom. Both to check if they are still available and for the level of the language they use; some contain very good visual materials.
