Students read "Geographical Mobility: 1995-2000." They examine the maps in the handouts and compare them with maps from an atlas. In the second part of this lesson, students read "In Harm's Way." They receive three more handouts, one a blank map of Florida, another about population change in Florida, and the last titled "Danger From Hurricanes. They discuss patterns observed in the maps, graphs, and data.
