Students analyze an interactive map and discuss whether those that colonized Latin America made a positive or a negative impact.
Students will work collaboratively in a variety of stations using maps of Europe and North America to practice their map skills. They will apply their knowledge about data to create graphs.
Students will create a bar graph representing data about China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, India, and the United States using information from a data bank. The data bank includes information on population, population density, gross domestic product, literacy rates, annual salary, infant mortality, and land area. Then, students will examine a light pollution map to make connections between the data presented and the bar graphs.
Students will compare East Germany’s government post World War II with the United States’ government.
