I really liked this map because it's easy to read and is interactive. This would work really well on the SmartBoard because it's easily accessible for both the students and teacher. This resource could be adapted into a lesson where the students must choose either a red or burgundy country and complete a research project on why these countries have such high levels of hunger. You could also do group presentations on their findings so the whole class gets an overall view of developing countries. The great thing about this map is that it's very basic and can be used in younger grade levels without adjustment.
