Countries of the World Flag Banner
As you journey through your Adventure Around the World, it’s fun to see the places where you’ve been. This simple activity will help remind you of all the interesting places you’ve explored so far and give you another way to engage with each country.

As you learn about the different countries in the world, it’s fun to find out what time it is in that part of the world compared to where you are in the world. World Time Server is a very helpful tool to help you figure out exactly what time it is all over the globe.
But don’t just look up the time zones! Take a moment to guess and see if you know what time it is in that country. Also, keep in mind that some countries may have multiple different time zones, just like the United States.
One of the first things you’ll discover on your Adventure Around the World is that the world is full of different languages! In fact, there are roughly 6,500 different languages spoken today!
As you travel around the globe, it’s fun to find out what language the people speak in each country and to hear some words in that language. Google Translate is an incredible tool for giving you a glimpse at each language – both hearing the words spoken and seeing them written in the alphabet each language uses.
Now, you will discover some languages that are not in Google Translate, but this is an exceptional free tool to help you bring the languages of the world right into your living room!
