"The World as you've never seen it before!"

Below is the map that this morning's Yr 8 lesson started with... What do you think it shows?

This, and hundreds of other maps, are part of a fascinating project called Worldmapper... The maps, or cartograms, show 200 world territories, re-sized according to different variables.

The one below shows toy exports!

Click on the map to explore the Worldmapper site... Leave a comment and let us know about your interesting finds!
