World Demographics A-Plenty! Fun to Use!
Social Studies teachers....heads up! A new world maps site is up and running and when you click on a certain demographic (GDP, Islam, HIV rate, etc.), the countries will change size based on what percent of the world's demographic category they account for. Very interesting and a very quick way to see what countries have what demographics. The site is adding more demographics as it goes, so the site is getting better and better! I could see having students play around with it and write some of the more interesting things they find or learn. Give it a try!
