Population Education materials fit seemlessly into the AP Human Geography CED. Lessons are, of course, especially great for unit 2: Population and Migration Patterns and Processes. PopEd activities cover age structure diagrams, fertility and mortality rates, the demographic transition model , and more. And because our growing population impacts a lot about the world around us, PopEd also has resources for teaching APHG units 5, 6, and 7 with activities covering topics like urbanization, environmental impacts of agricultural practices, and the role of women in a changing world.
