Our Grade 9 class has begun its next unit of the year on Population and the challenges of a crowded world. This is certainly timely and on point for an integrated Humanities course in the IB program. Soon we will be looking at issues of sustainability of resources and the impacts of the human population on our world.
On the eve of 7 billion last year, the inter-webs have been filled with some pretty cool resources on population. These include:
- National Geography – 7 Billion Special Investigation
- Census of India Dashboard
- Dynamic Population Pyramids
- World Population Clock
As we go through the unit, I’m trying to build resources for classes to come – and update this post accordingly. Suggestions are most appreciated!
