A New Way to Look at the World

My Grade 8 Socials Teacher, Shannon Leggett, is one of my friends on Facebook (and a terrific resource to me). She happened to share this amazing map site with me called Show World which changes the size of the countries of the world depending on the information you are looking for. One that I found interesting was the map of countries with the most internally displaced people because of how much the traditional world map changes.

 

I shared this map site on twitter with my PLN and it was retweeted so much that within four days the link has been viewed over 1,000 times! Try it out yourself. Which views do you think are the most interesting and why?
