Gapminder video
Great one here on the contrasts between EMDCs and ELDCs. Only 4 mins long too!
The Interactive section of this site is brilliant for Higher, Int 2 and S grade. Take your time to look at all the different “bits” and read all the graphs. You never know what graphs they will use in the dreaded exams!!!
Use the maps in the Gapminder World section and play about looking at different countries. Check out the rapid progress of China and India in recent years and compare especially to USA and the UK. Look at some African nations too as well as Brazil. Lots to see.
This video shows what life is like in some slums. Not pleasant but good revision folks. Hope you realise how lucky we ALL are in Britain.
