Break into groups so that it is balanced with people who were present for the lesson with people who were absent for the lesson. Using the next 2 graphs spend a few minutes in your group talking about a population pyramid. Include: 1. Where to find the male & female information 2. Where to find the total population 3. Where to find the age data 4. The differences between a graph for an MDC and and LCD or LLDC 5. Three pieces of information or generalizations you can make about a graph.
MDC Low birth and death rates mean an MDC Relatively high senior population means good health care Slightly more senior females than males is average for an MDC
Look at the following graph. On a piece of scrap answer the following: MDC or LDC? How do you know? What could you say about this nation? Once completed trade your sheets with others to correct them and give them back.
LDC (Ethiopia) High birth and death rates Pyramid gets smaller at the top due to poor health care and natural mortality FYI – the sharp decrease in population from 0-4 and 5-9 is due to child mortality. If children die here they will usually die before their 5 th birthday. This happens at a rate of roughly 1.5 – 2 million a year.
Get a piece of graph paper from the teacher to graph the data on the population data sheet Label the graphs Country 1 and Country 2 You may do this in pairs but no more. On the back answer the following: MDC or LDC? How do you know? 2 predictions about the country… Be prepared next class to do one on your own.
