Reviewer Comments:

This is a powerful tool to engage students in a discussion about real time birth/death rates and CO2 emissions. Some of the data is a few years old, but the general statistics remain the same. This animation could be even more valuable if there were sets of questions that came with it to prompt critical thinking from students. The reviewer also thinks many middle school students would get a good deal of information from this and could generate discussion questions about what they observe.
