In Unit 4 our class will be studying Human Geography. We are focusing on the four major components that help students recognize the affect of natural resources on a country's population distribution and economy. The four sections we will be covering are:

1. The Geography of Population2. Why People Move3. Resources and Economics4. Why we need government

We have some amazing activities planned to make this unit engaging. Students will learn how to calculate population density of areas around the world, debate their preference of urban vs. rural, create a domino sequence of their migration, create their own style of government and rules, change laws that already exist, and create their own solution to solving economic troubles our country is facing. Please be on the look out for some helpful foldables and graphic organizers to help break down the material in this section. We will be having two quizes on 10/13 and 10/16 rather than a Unit 4 test to help students divide the material and master the concepts.
