Transcript of Population Pyramids - Wingate Population Pyramids ¢â‚¬¢ Draw two simple...

  • Population Pyramids

    • Draw two simple sketches of these pyramids (they can be outlines)

    • Describe what the pyramid for Ethiopia shows

    • Think about the birth rate and reasons for it

    • Think about the death rate and reasons for it

    • Now write a comparison to the UK’s pyramid

  • What? Where? Why? Who?

  • Global Distribution of Population

    Lesson Objectives: •Describe the distribution of people •Explain the concept of population density •Suggest reasons why population density varies

  • Where do people live?

    • This map shows the distribution of the worlds population

    • Describe the distribution of people and suggest reasons for their distribution

  • Where do people live?

    • Is it just about the number of people?

    • What is wrong with just using this map?

  • Where do people live?

    • Compare the two maps, write down how this map is different?

  • Where do people live?

    • What terms can we use to describe how many people live in an area?

  • Reasons

    • The majority of people in in the northern hemisphere between 20° and 60°

    • This is often called the ‘Old World’

    • Reasons why some areas are densely populated and others are sparsely populated can be down to PHYSICAL and HUMAN factors

    • Sort the following into PHYSICAL and HUMAN factors

  • Physical or Human?

    Relief

    Climate

    Resources

    Economic

    Social

    Soil

    Accessibility

    Vegetation

    Political

  • Complete the table on physical factors, what type of climate (etc) do you think would cause a high population density

    • EXTENSION: Look at the human factors and do the same

    PHYSICAL FACTORS Reasons for areas of high population density Reasons for areas of low

    population density

    Relief (shape and height of land)

    It is easier to live on low lying, flat land. This is because it is

    easier to build and farm

    Climate

    Soil If a location has soil which is not very fertile then very few

    people will choose to live there

    Vegetation

    Accessibility

    Resources

    HUMAN FACTORS

    Reasons for areas of high population

    density

    Reasons for areas of low population

    density

    Economic Think about the job opportunities, level of development, trade links and infrastructure Think about the job opportunities, level of

    development, trade links and infrastructure

    Social Think about how people like to live, do they

    like to live in urban areas e.g. Japan vs Sweden

    Think about how people like to live, do they like to live in urban areas e.g. Japan vs

    Sweden

    Political Think about how stable the governments are e.g. UK vs Afghanistan Think about how stable the governments are

    e.g. UK vs Afghanistan

  • The problems of having a high population density
