How many people in the world?

Once again, I think it is important to challenge students to think creatively while considering new ideas. This was behind today’s “Big Question” in our integrated studies class:

If there are approximately 7.2 billion people alive today, how many people were living when Christ was born?

Answer: After much discussion and research, it appears that there were approximately 230 – 250 million people alive when Christ was born.
