If this is the answer what is the question?
181,956,020 If this is the answer what is the question? This was the population of Nigeria on Sunday 8th March 2015. Challenge: what do you think the population is today? Teachers: follow the link to reveal!

Title: Nigeria’s Population
LO: To investigate the population of Nigeria. I can: Describe Nigeria’s population (all) Explain regional differences in Nigeria’s population density (most) Predict how Nigeria’s population will change in the next few years (some)

What do you notice about Nigeria’s population?
Population pyramids are used by Geographers to look at the structure of the population. What do you notice about Nigeria’s population? HINT: which age group is the largest?

Nigeria’s population pyramid is thin at the top
Nigeria’s population pyramid is thin at the top. This means people in Nigeria are not expected to live as long as those in the UK. Nigeria’s pyramid is wide at the bottom. This means there is a high birth rate. The UK has a narrower bottom so the birth rate is lower.

Which states have the highest population density?
Population density means the number of people living in an area. It is usually measured per square mile or square kilometre. Can you see any patterns on the map on the left? Where are the areas with the highest/lowest populations?

Write a paragraph about Nigeria’s population. Try to include the 5W’s – what, when, who, why, where? Use the levels in the blue box to help you. I can: Describe Nigeria’s population (3-4) Explain regional differences in Nigeria’s population density (5) Predict how Nigeria’s population will change in the next few years (6+)

And finally… Which slice of the pie do you think shows the percentage of Nigerian’s who live in cities?

That’s right! 51% of Nigeria’s population live in cities.
And finally… That’s right! 51% of Nigeria’s population live in cities. Next time we will investigate life in Nigeria’s cities and the countryside.
