This video describes the unveiling of the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa, or The Dubai Tower. While the video goes into detail about the economic repercussions both positive and negative of the building, my third grade class would focus on the statistics. A portion of the video gives facts such as height, number of elevators, number of floors, etc. The third graders would use this portion to compare this building with the 4 next tallest buildings in the world. They will complete graphs depicting the information and solve varying math problems.
