To navigate to two reference databases to find information about your continent or city such as population, languages spoken, foods consumed, average income, climate, etc.
The two best options for this project are Encarta Online and Encyclopedia.com.
Ex. Nairobi yields results for information like when the city was founded and their national park. Note the items listed in blue lettering are hyperlinks, which will lead you to detailed information. Additionally, there is a map and photos.
There is a brief paragraph with basic information about this city. Note the underlined words are hyperlinks, which will lead you to additional information. Additionally, there are news related articles from Time, Newsweek and newspapers along with photos towards the bottom of the page.
