Gapminder, the great data visualization site led by Hans Rosling (see The Best Hans Rosling Videos) has just unveiled Dollar Street, which I think is an extraordinary site.

They have collected 30,000 photos from 46 countries that allow you to compare, as they say, “how people really live.”

You can compare bathrooms, toys – you name it.

It has so much potential for so many lessons — exploring different cultures, economic analysis, geography, compare/contrast, etc.

I’m adding it to:
