our footprint! Go to cart and get a computer. To answer these questions, we can measure our ecological footprint. Our ecological footprint
measures the amount of
land EACH PERSON uses to live. Everything we do effects the size of our footprint.

Americans tend to have a bigger ecological than people in other countries. Why does this map look so weird?? log in

Population case study: China's one child policy U.N. POPULATION CONFERENCE Ambassadors, the developing world is facing a population crisis! Today, we must decide which world region is in most need of our aid. Agenda:
Please visit each table and fill in the notes.
Spend 2-3 minutes at each region.

Practice quiz! What are two things that may cause high birth-rate?

What are two things that may cause low birth-rate?

How does population grow differently in a developed and a developing country? Over population is a problem... Let's look at how one country tried to deal with it. We're going to learn how the one child policy has affected China.

The one Child policy was a rule started in China in 1979 that forced parents to have only one child; if parents have more, they are heavily fined. If they have just one, they are rewarded.

China made this rule because they have the world's biggest population, and were in danger of running out of resources if the population kept growing the way it did. The government was worried about not being able to feed everyone. Before we learn more, write the pros and cons you think might result from such a rule. How did the policy turn out? The One Child Policy was a very effective way to slow down population growth. It is estimated that there wold be 300 million more people in China without the Policy. That's the same as the
population of America!

But it also led to
many problems.
Was it worth the cost? One big problem... Some families really need to have more children, to help with farm work, and to take care of the parents when they are older.... Another Problem: Traditional Chinese culture values boys over girls. If a family has a baby-girl, they may send her to an over-crowded orphanage... or worse. What is this picture showing? Turn in your projects!
Brochures: Put your green sheets, UN sheets, and brochures in a pile and bring them to me.
Put the green sheet and the UN Sheet with your computer and set it aside. I'll grade it after school and log you off.

OWLS: go get a study guide for everyone.
KOALAS: got get a China worksheet. Today's Agenda TEST!
Finish missing work, read an article about China, etc.
Learn more about China's one child policy.
Have a debate? Test Time! When you're done...
Work on any missing assignments.
Read the article on China's one child policy.
Color the world map Not only does this mean that baby girls suffer, it also causes a gender imbalance. There is 118 boys for every 100 girls. The policy also causes there to be many old people in society with no younger people to take care of them! DEBATE The coin will decide which side you are on.
If you do not participate: you will work quietly. You will be the audience and dedcide which side has won.
