Population_Examples.gif

The Activity:

Use the laptops to log onto: US CENSUS Website.

Then find 8-10 examples of nations (that we haven't discussed today in class) and classify
them into one of the 3 categories.

1) RAPID GROWTH NATION
2) SLOW GROWTH NATION
3) NEGATIVE GROWTH NATION

I will call on various teams to come up the the board and identify or talk about their models of choice.
