My Take

So many times teachers focus on China and Japan because there are fewer resources for other countries. This website has lots of different ways to examine similarities and differences across the other countries that ensure that students see the many faces of Asian diversity. History, geography, art, culture - it's all here to be used in project-based learning, research and any type of activity or lesson.

How I Use It

There is more application to middle school and high school social studies units, but I have used this with intermediate teacher also (less with primary grades). We have used videos and maps to discuss how discoveries from Asia influenced math and science. There is so much that students can be overwhelmed but with clear directions for specific links it is easily managed.
