Learning about the Countries of the World

I have always wanted to learn about the different countries of the world: their cultures, customs, languages, life.  Hence my degrees in Linguistics and International Relations.  But I have found that my entire family enjoys that too.  And the more we have learned, the more I can see it broaden the horizons of my children's imaginations and open their perspectives to the life experiences of others.  It is something that I wanted to encourage and do in a more systematic way.

So I sat down and found a list of all of the countries in the world and their territories and printed it out.  (I can't find the exact link now, as I am writing this in April of 2020, but I think it was the list on Wikipedia of sovereign states, found here.)  I put all of the slips of paper in a big tin and we are going draw one country at a time out to learn about.  I am really excited for this adventure!
