Lesson 1 Reading Guide - KC What is the relationship between resource availability and human population growth? How do daily activities impact the environment? People and the Environment
Lesson 1 Reading Guide - Vocab population carrying capacity People and the Environment
Lesson 1-1 A population is all the members of a species living in a given area.population Population and Carrying Capacity population from Latin populus, means people
Lesson 1-1 Today, about 6.7 billion people live on Earth. Population and Carrying Capacity (cont.)
Lesson 1-1 The greatest increase in human population occurred during the last few centuries. Population explosion describes the sudden rise in human population that has happened in recent history. Population and Carrying Capacity (cont.)
Lesson 1-1 Carrying capacity is the largest number of individuals of a given species that Earths resources can support and maintain for a long period of time.Carrying capacity Earth has limited resources and cannot support a population of any species in a given environment beyond its carrying capacity. Population and Carrying Capacity (cont.)
Lesson 1-1 If the human population continues to grow beyond Earths carrying capacity, eventually Earth will not have enough resources to support humans. Population and Carrying Capacity (cont.) What is the relationship between the availability of resources and human population growth?
Lesson 1-2 Each of the 6.7 billion people on Earth uses resources in some way and the use of these resources affects the environment. Impact of Daily Actions resource Science Use a natural source of supply or support Common Use a source of information or expertise
Lesson 1-2 Impact of Daily Actions (cont.) What are three things you did today that impacted the environment?
Lesson 1 - VS Human population has exploded since the 1800s. Every day billions of people use Earths resources. The human population will eventually reach its carrying capacity.
Lesson 1 - VS When humans use resources, they can have both negative and positive impacts on the environment. It is important for humans to use resources wisely.
Lesson 1 – LR1 A.about 100 million B.about 6.7 billion C.about 10 billion D.about 67 billion About how many people live on Earth today?
Lesson 1 – LR2 A.decreasing carrying capacity B.decreased life span C.increasing carrying capacity D.population explosion Which phrase describes the change in human population in recent history?
Lesson 1 – LR3 A.Earth will be able to support humans for several thousand years. B.Earth will continue providing unlimited resources. C.Earth will not have enough resources to support humans. D.There will be a population explosion. If the human population grows beyond Earths carrying capacity, which of the following will likely be true?
Lesson 1 - Now 1.Earth can support an unlimited number of people. 2.Humans can have both positive and negative impacts on the environment. Do you agree or disagree?
Lesson 2 Reading Guide - KC What are the consequences of using land as a resource? How does proper waste management help prevent pollution? What actions help protect the land? Impacts on the Land
Lesson 2 Reading Guide - Vocab deforestation desertification urban sprawl reforestation reclamation Impacts on the Land
Lesson 2-1 Deforestation is the removal of large areas of forests for human purposes.Deforestation Deforestation affects soil and air quality. Using Land Resources Brand X Pictures/Punchstock
Lesson 2-1 Scientists estimate that human activities have doubled the amount of nitrogen cycling through the ecosystems. Excess nitrogen can kill plants adapted to low nitrogen levels and affect animals that depend on those plants for food. Using Land Resources (cont.)
Lesson 2-1 The Nitrogen Cycle
Lesson 2-1 Desertification is the development of desert-like conditions due to human activities and/or climate change.Desertification A region of land that undergoes desertification is no longer useful for food production. Using Land Resources (cont.)
Lesson 2-1 Though mines are essential for obtaining much-needed resources, digging mines disturbs habitats and changes the landscape. Photodisc/Getty Images
Lesson 2-1 Using Land Resources (cont.) What are some consequences of using land as a resource?
Lesson 2-2 The development of land for houses and other buildings near a city is called urban sprawl. urban sprawl The impacts of urban sprawl include habitat destruction, loss of farmland, and an increase in runofff that can reduce the water quality of streams, rivers and groundwater. Construction and Development
Lesson 2-3 Landfills are areas where trash is buried. A landfill is carefully designed to meet government regulations. Hazardous waste cannot be placed in landfills because it contains harmful substances that can affect soil, air, and water quality. Waste Management
Waste Management (cont.) What is done to prevent the trash in landfills from polluting air, soil, and water?
Lesson 2-4 Governments, society, and individuals can work together to reduce the impact of human activities on land resources. Protected forests and parks are important habitats for wildlife. Reforestation involves planting trees to replace trees that have been cut or burned down.Reforestation Positive Actions
Lesson 2-4 ReclamationReclamation is the process of restoring land disturbed by mining. Positive Actions (cont.) reclamation from Latin reclamare, means to call back
Lesson 2-4 Green spaces are areas that are left undeveloped or lightly developed. Individuals can have a big impact on land-use issues by practicing the three Rsreusing, reducing, and recycling. Positive Actions (cont.)
Lesson 2-4 Positive Actions (cont.) What can you do to help lessen your impact on the land?
Lesson 2 - VS Deforestation, agriculture, and mining for useful rocks and minerals all can affect land resources negatively. People use land for living space, which can lead to urban sprawl, an increase in roadways, and the need for proper waste disposal.
Lesson 2 - VS Creating national parks, preserves and local green spaces, reforestation, and practicing the three Rs are all ways people can positively impact land resources.
Lesson 2 – LR1 A.cover the landfill with clay and dirt B.line the landfill with sand or gravel C.monitor the quality of underground oxygen D.use groundwater to dilute liquid wastes Landfills do which of the following to control pollution?

Chapter Review Menu Key Concept Summary Interactive Concept Map Chapter Review Standardized Test Practice
The BIG Idea Human life is dependent on Earths material resources. Actions such as deforestation, water pollution, and global warming impact the environment negatively. Positive actions include reforestation, reclamation, and water conservation.
Key Concepts 1 Earth has limited resources and cannot support unlimited human population growth. Daily actions can deplete soil, water, and air. Lesson 1: People and the Environment
Key Concepts 2 Lesson 2: Impacts on the Land Deforestation, desertification, habitat destruction, and increased rates of extinction are associated with using land as a resource. Landfills are constructed to prevent contamination of soil and water by pollutants from waste. Hazardous waste must be disposed of in a safe manner. Positive impacts on land include preservation, reforestation, and reclamation.
Key Concepts 3 Humans use water in electricity production, industry, and agriculture, as well as for recreation and transportation. Point-source pollution and nonpoint-source pollution can reduce water quality. International agreements and national laws help prevent water pollution. Other positive actions include disposing of waste safely and conserving water. Lesson 3: Impacts on Water
Key Concepts 4 Photochemical smog, CFS, and acid precipitation are types of air pollution. Human activities can add carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere can lead to global warming. Air pollutants such as ozone can irritate the respiratory system, reduce lung function, and cause asthma attacks. International agreements, laws, and individual actions such as conserving energy help decrease air pollution. Lesson 4: Impacts on the Atmosphere
