The Next Billion

Middle schoolers identify things that continually change, for example; their age and height, the date, the temperature outside, and the position of the sun in the sky. The thrust of the lesson is for middle schoolers to predict when the world's population will reach 7 billion people. This is no easy task, and learners work together in groups to come up with their prediction and report to the class.

Lesson Planet has given new life to concepts that I have taught for years! It is an awesome resource. I introduced my student teacher to Lesson Planet last year and she is using it this year in her classroom.
