Thursday Thirteen

I decided to do something a little different. Here I have listed the 13 Most Populous Nations. I find the list interesting particularly due to how many I know virtually nothing about. Isn’t that crazy? All those people but because they are 3rd world, our schools just pass them by. So not good. If I homeschool the peanut she’s going to know about them!

    It is a sad statement for the school systems that we don’t know much about those countries. Thank you for getting that list out there.

    What an interesting list. I don’t know much about most of those countries either. That’s the public school system for you. I was pretty surprised that China and India have so many more people than the US!

    A very interesting and informative list. I don’t know enough about most of these countries either, though their populations weren’t too much of a surprise. Great idea for a TT!

    I am amazed that Vietnam is in that list. Look at the huge gap between #2 and #3.
