This quick activity can be used as a starter, exploring activity or plenary in a lesson on population growth or to recap natural population growth in a lesson introducing the impacts of international migration.
The resource is provided as one side of A4, which can be easily printed or photocopied. Each item can then be cut out using a guillotine (for ease of use and time keeping this should be done before the lesson but pupils can be asked to do it themselves with a pair of scissors if desired). If the cards are to be used multiple times it is advisable to laminate the cut out cards or to print directly onto card rather than paper.
Having to figure out how the parts of the equation fit together to give net population growth, really seems to help them to understand the concept and to remember this pivotal piece of information in exams.
A powerpoint that looks at the limiting factors for populations and includes information about indicator species, both plant and animal. There is a posibility for class participation in providing answers to questions raised.
