|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?
I read If The World Were A Village and it showed if every person represented 100 people in a village. It gave a great view of the world and how we can change it. I was very shocked at the statistics that they gave because I actually thought the world was worse. For example 76% had electricity and only 24% didn't. I was surprised in a different way when it talked about cars. There were only 2 cars in the village and 1 truck. I was also very surprised in the end where it showed the growth of population. In the very beginning there was only one person, then 2, then 3, and it gradually changed until 1800 where it was about 30. Then it went up to 100 in just 200 years instead of 1 person going up in 500 years. I wish there were more cars and bikes so people can get to places faster. I really wish there was more clean water in the world so people don't have to walk far away just to get their water. I also wish there was more electricity. I would want to improve those by just buying those things for them, but I can't because I don't have enough money. I would also try to donate which I can do but sometimes I don't have any money to donate to them.
