It is Canterbury Show Day today and I am sitting with my girls browsing the net and having fun asking questions of Ms Dewey. We came across the link above which is a counter of world population. It allows you to pick a date back to 1970 and compare population then and now. You can also project into the future and see what the population will be up to 2037. This could be worth sharing as a discussion starter for my class. If I team this up with The Story of Stuff the discussion could get really interesting. I'm going to try it out.
Four day working weeks are great! Maybe the new government would consider this as a new policy?
