L.O: To further develop our knowledge of population pyramids through group work and exam practice…

Task 1: In your groups of 4 assign yourself a student role (A,B,C &D) and try to perform the task that is described in each role so that we can workout where this population pyramid comes from?

WHAT CAUSED SUCH A GENDER IMBALANCE???

Student A:

Student A, using the key terminology from your previous lesson, can you describe the shape of this population pyramid (to help think of the “Gucci Geography” words identified – convex sides/concave sides/straight sides; contracting/expanding/stationary; narrow base or top/bulging middle; pyramid/oval/”coffin” shaped). Try to aim for a description of approximately 100 words so that you can be sure you have enough detail…

 

Student B:

Student B, You are to focus on the different sections of this population and try to answer the following questions:

The youthful dependent population (age 0-19):

1) Identify the total number of youthful dependent populous – be as accurate as possible

2) Explain the possible reasons for this total number in this section of the population

 

The Economic Active Workforce (age 20-69):
