LEVEL 1: Match – How do populations Change?
LEVEL 2: Summarize – Where do people live? Where don’t people live?
LEVEL 3: Draw Conclusions – How do we compare populations using population pyramids?
LEVEL 4: Create and Connect – How does the Demographic Transition Model explain changing birth and death rates?
