This lesson is all you need for your World Geography study of Population Pyramids!
Included in this lesson:
-A set of teacher instructions for the lesson and how to set up the foldable.
-A 15 slide power point that introduces the concept of population pyramids to your students. 2 video links are embedded: 1 shows the growth of the world's population, the second is a TED talk video that teaches the parts of the population pyramid.
-A population pyramid foldable where students create examples of 4 types of population pyramid. The power point walks the students through this foldable.
-A flexible follow up assignment where students use a website link to analyze population pyramids for every country of the world. You can use this assignment for homework, in class work, or explore the website as a class with the questions as a guide. Choose the one that works best for your teaching style!
This is a fun lesson that engages students throughout. My kids LOVE the website and checking out all the pyramids and trying to analyze why they look the way they do!
