CD - The human alteration of biomes to produce food, industrial materials and fibres, and the environmental effects of these alterations.

Select number 7 for Isahaya Bay, Japan.

 

An effort to reclaim tidal flats in this area of Japan’s southern island of Kyushu began a year prior to the 1990 image at left. Although a substantial portion of the area behind the seawall (visible as a diagonal gray line) has been fully converted to agriculture, Japanese citizens groups continue to protest the destruction of wetlands and other ecological damage caused by the project.

This Unicef graphic depicts countries and territories with populations exceeding 100,000. The interactive graphic begins in 1950 and predicts up to 2050. Hover over a country to see how urban it is (percentage of people living in cities and towns) and the size of its urban population (in millions). This is a great resource to develop a discussion in your classroom about population and urbanity. The topic of population deals with such large numerical values, and the great thing is that the changing circles work as a visual aid to help younger students who lack the numerical knowledge to still understand the population development.

Crop production will have to double by 2050 to fulfill the needs of a growing and increasingly affluent population. Meeting this challenge will be difficult but not impossible, according to the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment.

I really liked this map because it's easy to read and is interactive. This would work really well on the SmartBoard because it's easily accessible for both the students and teacher. This resource could be adapted into a lesson where the students must choose either a red or burgundy country and complete a research project on why these countries have such high levels of hunger. You could also do group presentations on their findings so the whole class gets an overall view of developing countries. The great thing about this map is that it's very basic and can be used in younger grade levels without adjustment.
