2008/9 Wikipedia Selection for schools

The contents of this 2008/9 Schools Wikipedia has been organised by subject along the lines of subjects in the UK curriculum. There are 5500 articles, some of which have been listed under several subjects. Topics were chosen for interest to children, by relevance to the National Curriculum and including much of the very best of Wikipedia.

This 2008/9 Wikipedia DVD Selection is a free, hand-checked, non-commercial selection from Wikipedia, targeted around the UK National Curriculum and useful for much of the English speaking world. It has about 5500 articles (as much as can be fitted on a DVD with good size images) and is about the size of a twenty volume encyclopaedia (34,000 images and 20 million words).
