The Miniature Earth

This great little video is giving me loads of ideas for activities to do with my son.

The Miniature Earth: if we could turn the population of the Earth into a small community of 100 people, keeping the same proportions we have today, it would be something like this...

It shows you, out of 100, how many people there would be from each continent, religion, economic situation, gender, level of education, etc.

I think we´ll start by using beans to show the proportions. We can work out the percentages, make charts and graphs, study the main religions mentioned...

It´s a great social studies project!
