If the World Were a Village is contemporary picture book that contains a collection of statistics about the population of a village. The village is an imaginary place with 100 residents and each resident represents 64 million people from the real world. Numbers this big are hard to understand. The purpose of the book is to provide imagery and information about the world that provides a sense of the world within a population that is easier to visualise.
After sharing the book students are asked to use graph-making software to create a circle or bar graph to illustrate a different statistic from the book. The free Create a Graph tool is very easy to use.
