About this deal

Except where otherwise noted, images on this site are © the attributed photographer/artist/illustrator or representative agency. As well as interpreting real data, this activity gives an opportunity to consider how data are presented and interpreted. Smith is a teacher and educational consultant with over 25 years of experience in the classroom and is the creator of the award-winning curriculum "Mapping the World by Heart. I was already going to start off discussing different cultures but this is a fanfreakingtastic starting point. I could definitely integrate "If the World Were a Village: A Book about the World's People" with Math and Social Studies instruction.

While perhaps not the most boring book ever created for young readers, If the World Were a Village is certainly a contender. By shrinking the planet down to a village of just 100 people, children will discover how to grow up global and establish their own place in the world village. The 2nd Edition of the best-selling book which has sold over 400 000 copies in 17 languages — updated with new content and insights about the world’s people. First published to wide acclaim in 2002, this eye-opening book has since become a classic, promoting “world-mindedness” by imagining the world’s population — all 6. Encourage children to consider whether their representation is fair and whether what they've chosen to use is suitable.At the same time, the book does make it easy for its readers as it takes all the global statistics with big numbers (millions/billions), and puts them in real human terms.

Designed with kids in mind, this book does it all - relatable illustrations, captions, text features, and more. And when dealing with simultaneous translation, make sure you divide the length of your phrases as well as the anticipated duration of your talk by two.

Western audiences tend to pay attention to focus points, while Eastern people consider the background. This bestseller is newly revised with updated statistics, new activities and completely new material on food security, energy and health. On a personal note (and this is no criticism of the book) while I am a huge supporter of getting children to understand the world on a global scale and to appreciate diverse countries and cultures, I also think it is important for families to explain that even within ones own country, there are often vast differences in what people experience.

This book (an updated version to reflect the current population) would be great to teach a variety of skills in social studies and math. For example, when he speaks of world religions he connects the Muslims to their minaret, the Christians to a bell tower, and the Buddists to the gong.Synopsis: It is really difficult to imagine just how many people live on our planet and what they are like. Sometimes, I feel like it is easy for us (and students) to visualize the population of Earth to be very similar to us in reference to these elements if it is all that we are surrounded by. Further to this, it highlights the concept of global citizenship, tolerance whilst simultaneously exposing children to information texts.
