Stages of the Demographic Transition Model

Stages of the Demographic Transition Model

This is a more interesting alternative to textbooks to help students learn about the five stages of the Demographic Transition Model. Give out the note frames (in A3) and then have students rotate the information about each stage around - this is a 'market place' style activity, but moving the sheets is easier than moving students! Each stage also has information on a case study country. These were chosen to align with the popular Nelson textbook, so absent students can copy up with ease. I would welcome feedback on how the resources could be improved!

Machu Picchu with Google Earth Tours

Machu Picchu with Google Earth Tours

Tour Machu Picchu with Google Earth ToursMake a virtual field trip to one of the world’s most famous landmarks; Machu Picchu. You will be using Google Earth to watch a pre-recorded tour of the lost Incan city located in the Andes Mountains. You will learn about its famous structures like the Temple of the Sun, Royal Palace, Sacred Stone and Intihuatana.The product includes a document of about 25 talking points and interesting facts about the ancient Incan site and it’s occupants. The tour is also accompanied by a PDF file that describes what you are seeing based on the corresponding minutes in the video. This is so you can pause the tour at the given time stamp and let the class know what they are looking at. For example the document says at, “2:23 – 2:37 – The House of the Guardians is the first stop within the city. A. The House of the Guardians is the little house in the middle of the screen. It’s technically outside of the city’s walls. 
B. Despite its name implying that the city’s guards lived there, it’s not really known what its purpose was. 
C. To the right of tiny house is a rock called the Funerary Rock and behind that is an area known as the Cemetery. 
D. Their names are derived from the fact that human skeletons were unearthed here, but its unlikely they were actually used for funerals or as a place to bury the dead. ”The tour begins with a view of South America from outer space. You are then zoomed in to the site’s location to see it from a variety of different viewpoints. The angles are chosen so the students can get a good idea of the city’s location, as well as, the locations of the city’s structures. Finally, you are taken back out to a long shot of South America.The cover photo is by jdbenthien and is under a Public Domain license.
