We all know conditions in North and South Korea are very different. This lesson makes it VISUAL! It also teaches your kiddos to read (and make!) cartograms, a cool map-graph hybrid.
This lesson includes:
- a PowerPoint introducing & explaining cartograms – including some very cool examples
- optional guided notes for students
- an easy-to-read student handout with statistics on North and South Korea’s electricity production, gross domestic product, and population
- three student handouts set up for students to create their own cartograms on the two countries’ electricity production, gross domestic product, and population – which allows them to “discover” how different the countries are (You can have each student do all three or spread the three versions out among different students.)
- answer “keys” for each of the three cartogram handouts (actually, sample answers, since there are a variety of ways to do cartograms “correctly”)
- a PowerPoint with photos illustrating the differences students have seen on their own cartograms
- a detailed lesson plan
This is a favorite which I have used with students for several years. I updated the stats and the photos this year for my students, so you’re getting my newest version. :)
