World population has more than doubled in the past 50 years, changing earth’s landscape and impacting the global environment. Understanding population trends and human-environmental interactions is central to the study of human geography, but is also cross-disciplinary. In this hands-on session, participants will discover lessons rich in content, real-world data and problem-solving that integrate life sciences with world history and geography.

Presented activities explore human population growth, climate change, changes in biodiversity and land use. Activity formats include data analysis and interpretation, modeling and group problem-solving. The presenter will also engage the group with new online media that combines social science platforms (mapping and historical timelines) with environmental themes. Participants will receive lesson plans and background readings in an electronic format, matched to the C3 Framework.
