Crocker Chronicle has the most amazing blogs. Here's another great one especially for the high school senior who needs an unusual topic to write about. Follow the link at the bottom and spend some fun time exploring the world.
Max Fisher of The Washington Post has created a sampling of forty different maps that demonstrate the differences in our world. The maps examine such things as religion, racial tolerance, economic realities, views on sexuality, population and languages spoken. Take a few moments to view the maps here and see the ways that people across the world are similar and which ways we are different.
