Population Chaos

Categories: Population, Geography General, Atmosphere
I really liked the cartoon above, which I think shows quite well the impact that a rapidly growing population can have on a country's development, and perhaps illustrates to s3 why China had to take the drastic measures that we were talking about on Tuesday. I was searching for some resources to use with you to illustrate population change over time, and also introduce the idea of a population pyramid, and I found this excellent website . Have a look at Western Europe and see the population drop off the radar! We might follow this up with some video, looking at Italy's changing population structure, if not tomorrow then Monday.
s4 revision continues, I know the prelims are taking their tolls, but keep up the good work. First presentations the other day were good, but need to move a little faster-possibly my fault for not putting a strict time on the presentation task.
One of my Higher class have asked to see the type of questions likely to be asked in the Atmosphere section of the course so that this can be linked to the areas of work covered so far, so will probably do this at the start of the period, followed by some kind of refresher on Air Masses and the movement of the ITCZ. I was pleased when one member of the class told me at supported study that Rural Land Resources has all suddenly fallen into place for him, and I think Atmosphere is quite similar-there seems to be an overwhelming amount of information (and most of it scientific) to take in, and when doing the unit things can seem lost in a bit of a fog, but once you've had time to digest the topic, I'm sure things will seem a lot clearer.
