This packet of lesson plan accompanies the World Population Map – a population cartogram. It is made up of six lesson plans and a student reading.
An introductory activity ensures students understand the cartogram and how it differs from traditional land area maps. Other activities explore content including: birth/death rates, population pyramids, population density, urbanization, arable land use, and a range of human development indicators (fertility, income, health, education, environmental quality and more) that give a fuller picture of life in different countries and regions.
These activities have been designed primarily for the high school social studies classroom but all are interdisciplinary, relying on and applying knowledge and skills from mathematics, English language arts, and science.
