Explaining population structures

Population pyramids are a favourite of demographers. Students are required to be able to describe their different shapes and attribute these differing forms to a range of geographical factors. In order to evaluate the wide variety of population structures, students here were given a country connected with their origin and asked to analyse and present it to the class. After researching population data and downloading the population pyramids from the CIA World Factbook, students then used Skitch to annotate the pyramids with their observations. This was completed for homework then shared with the class by projecting their work on the board using Airplay. Explain Everything was used as a presentation tool with students using the laser pointer feature to highlight anomalies.
