Human Ecology: How it Relates to Population

Ninth graders are introduced to the concept of population. In groups, they research the problems associated with overpopulation and underpopulation. They practice calculating birth and death rates and discus how they can be used to describe a country. To end the instructional activity, they focus on the role of women in population and how to voluntarly and involuntary control population.

After 28 years of teaching English, I signed up to teach grade nine art. My school only has 15 teachers and the students were losing out on opportunities to explore their creativity. Having access to the lessons on Lesson Planet has helped me to cover the curriculum while having fun with all the different ways of teaching the subject. To say this site is a blessing is an understatement!
