Reviewer Comments:

This lesson discusses the notion of ’Earth’s Carrying Capacity’ by modeling birth and death rates. The notion that if more people are born in a region than die, the population will increase is modeled using colored water. At the end of the lesson, students are asked to observe that rising population means that the population will increase.
