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 7+ billion of us, as a village of just 100 people. Now the book has been newly revised with updated statistics, several new activities and completely new material on food security, energy and health. By exploring the lives of the 100 villagers, children will discover that life in other nations is often very different from their own.
This book offers a perfect way to begin conversations with students early on in the year surrounding classroom community and diversity and respect for one another. This is also a great book to use when studying about different cultures. It can be easily used to integrate various math and problem solving activities based on the statistics provided.
