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!
