This resource is the third lesson in a unit on developing and developed nations. This lesson focuses on population growth in Africa and provides students with a more in-depth look at one of the major issues facing developing nations. The lesson includes a review of previous concepts, a reading about population growth, a mapping of population growth, and a writing assignment that all help students apply the content that they have learned. It should be noted that the lesson does include classroom specific references and would need to be adapted by individual teachers.
