Description
This unit is based on the concept explored in David J. Smith’s book, If the World Were a Village. In his book, Smith takes global demographics and statistics on standards of living and reduces them to a village of one hundred people. We have taken this concept and condensed it into roughly what the world would be like if it were a classroom of twenty-something students.

Description
This lesson is intended to encourage discussions on World Food Day (October 16). It includes short lesson ideas through which you can begin these discussions at any grade level. Beyond these initial ideas, some extension ideas are included that invite further discussions of food growth, access to healthy foods, food insecurity, nutrition, and poverty. Teachers can use these as a springboard and adapt them for their own use.
