1SWBAT identify modifications to the environment in SE Asia. 1. Objective (READ)SWBAT identify modifications to the environment in SE Asia.2. Question of the Day. (TURN OBJECTIVE INTO A QUESTION)3. Warm-up (ANSWER)A. If you were the mayor of a major city, how would you address the following problems:1. Earthquakes2. Lack of good farmland
2Human-Environment Interaction Table of ContentsDateTitleLesson #3/24Sri Lanka Conflict74**SE ASIA**3/29Cover Page753/30Physical Geography763/31Human-Environment Interaction771. Create an HEI page after your last physical geography page.
3Problems in China that require HEI 1. Earthquakes2. Lack of Arable Land – Desertification
4Intro Clips - L1. Earthquakes – Explain why these are problems.2. Desertification – How would this impact a city economically?
5Desertification Clips 1. How would these sandstorms affect a region economically?2. What is China doing to fight its desertification situation?
6Human-Environment Interaction, How do people adapt in Japan? Earthquakes in East AsiaHuman-Environment Interaction, How do people adapt in Japan?
7Why is Japan affected by internal forces? A. The islands of Japan were created by the movement of plate tectonics.B. Still active, Japan is affected by volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis.Mt. Fuji in Japan last erupted in 1707
8The Ring of FireUsing the map on pg. 662, which East Asian country has the greatest concentration of active volcanoes?(Answer this question in your notebook)
9Human Environment Interaction and Levels of Development In East and Southeast Asia people have to modify and adapt to the environment.Modifications and adaptations are directly related to their economic development.The more developed the area the more advanced their adaptations/modifications.The less developed areas have less advanced adaptations/modifications.READ ONLY
10What has Japan done to prepare for future earthquakes or tsunamis? Established strict building codes.School children and adults participate every year in disaster drills.Skyscrapers are built on gyroscopes (springs).Tsunami warning system in the Pacific.
11Adapting to Plate Tectonics In more developed areas Skyscrapers are built on gyroscopes (springs).
12Adapting to Plate Tectonics Less developed areas buildings are on pilings.Pilings are made of wood.
13Lack of Arable Land - Intro Another problem in E/SE Asia is a lack of arable land.Arable land land suitable for farmingHEI – they adapt to a lack of arable land…here’s how
14Lack of Arable LandLess developed areas use terraced farming- farming on ledges, on the side of the hill.Planting on slopes allows otherwise unproductive land to be use for farming.Both developed and developing areas of the world use terraced farmingUse traditional farming techniques, little or no machinery.
15COPY WHAT’S INSIDE THE BOX Lack of Arable LandBoth Developed and developing nations use terraced farmingDeveloping areas - use traditional farming techniques, little or no machinery.
16COPY WHAT’S INSIDE THE BOX Lack of Arable LandLand Reclamation-bringing land damaged by natural or human causes back into use for farmingDeveloped nations only – too expensive
17COPY WHAT’S INSIDE THE BOX Lack of Arable LandHeilongjiang Land Reclamation Project (China) – increasing farmland on land that was once swamp or semi-aridWhy:Crucial to ensuring China's food securityUses the most advanced farming techniques and machines in the world
18Heilongjiang Land Reclamation Project - READ THE SLIDE AND COMPLETE THE QUESTIONS BELOW ON THE BACK OF YOUR WORKSHEET.- ANSWER IN COMPLETE SENTENCES OR WRITE THE QUESTIONSThe project would develop some 200,000 ha of virgin land in Heilongjiang Province for the production of food grains and soybean. Principal features of the project would be drainage works; larger and more modern agricultural machinery for full mechanization of farming operations; construction equipment; and provision of roads, housing and supporting infrastructure. Training in equipment operation and maintenance and in construction techniques would be provided together with technical assistance (78 man-months of consultant services) in the fields of planning, training, and seed production. The project would produce more than 440,000 tons of grain and soybean annually, and thereby help reduce China's food grain deficit. It would serve as a large-scale trial and demonstration of techniques applicable to an additional 470,000 ha of uncultivated land and some 2 million ha now cultivated by state farms in Heilongjiang.From:Questions:1. Why did they do the project?2. What was required to complete the project?3. Who owns the land?
19COPY EACH SENTENCE AND COMPLETE IT IN YOUR NOTEBOOK Conclusion - Option 11. In E/SE Asia people have to modify and __________to the environment.2. Modifications and adaptations are directly related to a country’s __________ development.3. The more _________ an area, the more advanced their adaptations.4. The less developed areas have ______ advanced adaptations.Word Bank:AdaptLessPoliticalEconomicSocialMoreDevelopingDeveloped
20Conclusion – Option 2What are problems that exist in East and Southeast Asia’s environment?How have people in East and Southeast Asia modified or adapted to their environment?How does economic development affect how the people of East and Southeast Asia are able to modify or adapt to their environment?
