Interactive migrations map


This fascinating migration map shows immigration and emigration statistics around the world, based on 2007 figures. It’s quite addictive!

What would you do with this map in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context it is used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)

  1. That is totally fabulous – I have had to tear myself away from playing with it.

    What would I do? I think that this is a really good tool for working on numbers and statistics. I would probably split the class up into pairs or threes and ask each one to research a different country. They would have to present their findings to the group.

    Obviously, I work with adults, so they would be more likely to be capable of doing this than, say, teenagers. With brainy types (marketing, psychology, etc) I would discuss ‘urban myths’ and received wisdom on immigration, and then have them prove or disprove what we brainstormed using this map.

    Thank you for finding and sharing!
