World in the Balance

Students make estimates on how many people they believe live on Earth. While watching a video, they take notes on the issues facing Kenya, Japan and India. In groups, they calculate how long it takes for a country to double in size. To end the lesson, they discuss the challenges countries face with increasing populations.

Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver in assisting me with planning great lessons for my students. It has helped me to see what other teachers are using to engage their students in learning.
