High schoolers explore how changes in human land use are impacting local environments. They also explore some of the social impacts of various land uses in their area. They identify and discuss some social impacts of the different land uses.
In this environment worksheet, students find the solutions to a real life case study after separating into different groups. There is also information about types of land use for scaffolding of the project.
Students identify social and ecological considerations where human uses of land and trees conflict with each other and ecosystem needs, and describe importance of land-use management and planning through role play.
Young scholars examine and discuss personal responsibility in regard to the environment. They read stories, analyze a real land-use dispute, develop their own land-use code of ethics, and create and utilize a Good Citizen chart.
Students brainstorm lists of land uses, gather pictures of them, and create a collage. They research land uses in their communities by contacting local agencies. They make charts of the land use planning systems and their impact on private rights.
In this geography skills activity, students respond to 33 multiple choice questions pertaining to land use and land changes.
Students examine the land use values of a variety of people in Kenya. They determine how these differences can cause conflict among those who use the same land area. They look at the conflict from different points of view and they attempt to find solutions.
Here is a lesson that includes many great ideas for investigating and discovering how our communities have physically changed over the years, and how land use changes over time may affect a community's water supply. The lesson's procedures include conducting interviews with members of the community and designing an oral report on what was learned throughout the process.
Learners discuss the major changes that have taken place in the Hudson Valley over the past 400 years. They use aerial photos to describe major trends in Dutchess County. Students view a PowerPoint presentation. They work in small groups to come up with three major changes that have taken place in the Hudson Valley since the arrival of the European settlers.
Students review and evaluate the ways land is covered and used in their local community. They consider the environmental effects of the different types of land use. Students act as community planning engineers to determine where to place a new structure that will have the least affect on the environment.
Using a digital camera to document local landscapes as they are today, students will explore how changes in human land use are impacting local environments. Students will also explore some of the social impacts of various land uses in their area.
Students explore the use of matrices and graphing calculators to solve a complex linear programming problem. They test their solutions to determine the best division of land use for the city.
Young scholars study multiple land uses and their effects on one another. They assess multiple land uses in National Forests and Grasslands and evaluate the effects of each use on all other uses. They develop a comprehensive list of human activities and land uses permissible on public lands.
Young scholars predict the impact of population density on shelter, transportation, recreation, land use, and social skills and then research that impact on Japan. They write a response about the impact of population density on food production, the cost of housing, and social behavior.
Students simulate population growth and land use capacity by playing a board game. For this science lesson, students create new guidelines to conserve land resources. They explain how the land's carrying capacity affects living things.
Students examine different types of land use by humans and evaluate the ways land is used in their local community. They also consider the environmental effects of the different types of land use. Students assume the role of community planning engineers and will create a future plan for their community. Students write an essay on land use from the viewpoint of a planning engineer.
High schoolers consider decisions about how to use resources that are in short supply. Students role-play different perspectives in a land-use simulation, and examine land use issues around the world. This interesting lesson plan sheds light on a very important topic.
Learners participate in a simulation activity where they must decide whether or not to preserve an untouched forest. During the role play, students attend public hearings, discuss the pros and cons of nature development, create presentations in favor and opposition of the bylaw and have a group discussion. Additional games and activities dealing with land use are included.
High schoolers examine geological information to study benthic marine habitats. For this watershed project, students examine wetland habitats and land uses in a watershed. They will use geological information to discuss the impact of pollution in a watershed.
Students discover how land use in their community has changed. In this community and ecology lesson, students scan old newspapers to find articles about the development of community land. Students discuss and predict how land use has changed over time. Students generate questions for a community member interview to gain related information.  Students interview citizens and share their written responses with with the class.
