      Curricula with information for teachers and lesson plan ideas. For example the "Peace Education" section has 5 units which each contain suggested activities for class, suggested reading, links to more resources, and projects and activities.
      I like that there are both background readings for teachers AND activities and lesson plans for classrooms.

      The Community page has lots of projects that youth around the world have completed - art, video, writing, etc. This may be inspiring for students or may help to give faces to kids in other countries and places.

      Sweet! Games!
      Definitely play any of these before you pass them on to your students, the Flag Tag game would be great for Global Studies and the Water Quiz might be an interesting introduction to a lesson on world problems. The "Against All Odds" game is SO intense, why does everyone put it up? Anyway lots of games . . .

      Each of these boxes contains information on different global conflicts and issues. You could have your students explore this website and pick an issue to learn more about. Students could, for example, use the "web quest" in the box below to learn about child soldiers and then give a presentation for the class about the various issues affecting child soldiers and their opinion of what should be done to help these youth and their communities. Each student could select a different global challenge . . .

      The "Resources" page is the UN trying to be kid friendly. They have "student" versions of various treaties (and things) and UN Publications for download or order. If you were studying a specific international treaty or event the student versions contained here might be helpful (or you could go to the primary documents). I think it'd be better to have your students CREATE student versions of these documents than to use these, but there are some videos and some links that are helpful. The global map is outdated and slow. There are better maps elsewhere.

    "The United Nations Cyberschoolbus was created in 1996 as the online education component of the Global Teaching and Learning Project, whose mission is to promote education about international issues and the United Nations. The Global Teaching and Learning Project produces high quality teaching materials and activities designed for educational use (at primary, intermediate and secondary school levels) and for training teachers. The vision of this Project is to provide exceptional educational resources (both online and in print) to students growing up in a world undergoing increased globalization." \n\n "Within the Cyberschoolbus site there are a number of activities and projects that teach students about global issues in an interactive, engaging and fun way."

      The "Reading Guides" section has many suggestions for various peace education theorists and resources as well as some links to these sources and even some guides to teaching on these resources.

      Daryn was a teacher trainer for years and all of his "Activities" are student centered, multi-sensory and action-based.

      For "educators, students, organizations, and the community of practitioners working in the conflict management field" To "access multimedia materials that support conflict analysis and prevention, conflict resolution, and post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation."

      Very political

      Again, I would strongly caution you to try out games and media first. The Darfur and UNHCR games are extremely violent.

      The amount of info can get quickly overwhelming so I recommend searching for what you are particularly interested in. For example there are teaching guides for tons of movies and documentaries.

    Compiled database of games, radio programs, teaching materials, etc about global peace. Some of the content is rather graphic and all should be screened for appropriate audiences. Info on Darfur, refugees, education in various countries. Etc.
