Population Change

Page history last edited by catrin treanor 4 years, 11 months ago

Start with a QUIZ

 

How many people in the world?  CLOCK

 

How many by 2100? - no longer the 9 billion peak in 2050 that we have been quoting for a while?  WATCH Hans Rosling's report..   and read this report from The Guardian that reviews the latest UN projections

Take a look at the latest UN maps projecting Life Expectancy and Fertility Rates here

 

TASK: summarise the key points by finding out..

  • Which region of the world is set to be the fastest growing?

  • What are the 2 key reasons for fertility rates not falling as quickly as predicted in some regions of the world?

  • What has HIV/Aids got to do with it?

  • Why is the level of women's education such an important factor?

 

TASK: What are the factors that determine high and low levels of fertility?

 

  • Read your text book - pages 147 to 149
  • Create a mindmap or a table that shows the reasons - include references to countries and data (quote birth rates per 1000) where available -  You can use this table, (with the first factor completed for you!)

 

 

Take a look on GAPMINDER - select a range of contrasting countries - instructions
