BIG IDEA
  • There are many ways to adapt to an environment.

5
Essential Question
  • How does Population density affect the way people
    live in Japan?
  • Think transportation, housing, land use, and
    health/environment

6
Exploring Population Densities
  • Students made a prediction about the current
    world population.
  • We showed the current population on the Worlds
    Population Clock.
  • Discussed that the world population will be at 7
    billion by the end of 2011.
  • Watched the National Geographic 7 billion video.

Exploring Population Densities
  • After the 7 billion video, students headed down
    to the computer lab.
  • They were given a website http//www.ined.fr/en/ev
    erything_about_population/play_population/ and a
    guided exploration.
  • Students explored different aspects of the
    website took quizzes, simulated the population,
    and looked at data about people their age, and
    discovered!

    Each student became an expert on one part of
    Japanese life that is affected by overcrowding

    detailed ESSAY answering the above question in
    the complete sentences. You need to provide
    examples and information for each category.
