1 Year 7 People Everywhere Population DensityRevision PowerPoint
2 Let’s get started…You need to know the keywords to understand the assessment.To test your knowledge, you could print the next slide.Draw a line in PENCIL to link the keyword to it’s meaning!Then check your answers using slide 5Using the glossary on Doddle may help.See presentation “Sparse and dense populations- Part 4”.
3 Population Revision Key word link up Population Revision Key word link up! Use the notes in your exercise books and the glossary on page in the the geog 1 AND geog 2 book to link the keyword to it’s meaning!The number of people in a placePopulation DensityThings we need to live and work e.g. food, fuelSparsely populatedThe average number of people per square km in a placeDensely populatedVery few people live there.PopulationLots of people live there.ResourcesA place where people live- a hamlet, village, town or city.SiteSettlementLand a settlement is built on.
4 Now check your answers…. Correct any mistakes Now check your answers…. Correct any mistakes. Make sure you learn all the keywords ready for your assessment!The number of people in a placePopulation DensityThings we need to live and work e.g. food, fuelSparsely populatedThe average number of people per square km in a placeDensely populatedVery few people live there.PopulationLots of people live there.ResourcesA place where people live- a hamlet, village, town or city.SiteSettlementLand a settlement is built on.
5 Look at the next six pictures Where do you think each one is?What is the population density like? Sparse or Dense?Why do you think this is?Click to reveal the answers!
6 Picture 1 Where? Antartica Density? Sparse Why? Too Cold and no soil to grow crops.Covered in snow and ice. Too Cold for people.Snow and ice make communications and settlement difficult.
7 Picture 2 Where? The Amazon basin Density? Sparse Why? Too Hot and Wet for people, Dense forest makes travelling (communication) and Building settlements difficult
8 Picture 3 Density? Sparse Where? Sahara Desert Why? Too Hot and Dry for people. Too dry and too little soil for crops to grow. Sand makes communications difficult.
9 Picture 4 Where? Bangladesh Density? Dense Why? Low lying and flat (No steep slopes!). Rich, fertile soils. Hot and wet. Ideal farming conditions!
10 Picture 5 Where? Himalayas Density? Sparse Why? Cold temperatures in Winter.Poor, thin soils and rocks makes farming difficult.Steep slopes make communications and settlement difficult.
11 Picture 6 Where? Western Europe Density? Dense Why? Low lying and gentle slopes. Pleasant climate for people. Good water supply and soil for farming. Many resources for industry!
12 Now you are going revise population density and explain why some parts of the world are sparsely populated and some are densely populated.
13 We have looked at six regions and summarised the information on our revision sheets. Be ready to:Locate each region.Describe it’s population Density as sparse or Dense.Give reasons why it is like that.Have a go at filling in the gaps on a print out of slide 14. Then check your knowledge using slide 15
