20 Things That Happen in a Minute

20 Things That Happen in 1 Minute is a graphic that illustrates twenty common things that occur every minute in the United States and around the world. The graphic reminded me of a video, If the World Were a Village of 100, that I've seen a few times. That video is embedded below.

Here is a similar video that is geared toward a younger audience.

Applications for Education
These graphics and videos could be used to combine social studies and mathematics into one lesson. Students could use the video and or looking at the graphic as a model for creating their own diagrams about data sets. Students could create graphics about data sets that apply to the population of their state or country.
