Dollar Street in the classroom

I have been using the newly updated Dollar Street quite a lot this week with two year groups: Year 7s have been exploring the food that people with different incomes have access to, and the Year 8s have been exploring the 'stuff' that is owned by the families and whether there are thresholds to owning an object such as a washing machine (see the Hans Rosling video on this topic to see how important it is)

You can see more over on the blog where I share my teaching work: GeographyTeacher2.0 and also our departmental Twitter feed.

As part of preparations for this work, and also to support a Global Learning Programme CPD course that I'm hopefully leading in March if we can get a few more bookings, I've put together a resource for Geography teachers (and others) on how to use Dollar Street in the classroom.

It's not finished yet, but is a collaborative Google Drive document which will hopefully grow...

You're very welcome to add your own ideas to this document...
It's embedded below for your interest...
