Dear Division 16,
As we continue thinking about immigration and the movement of people around the world, and as we start to look forward to Student Vote and our study of the upcoming election, it is a good time to think both backwards and forwards about our communities.
I found this link on the CBC webpage that shows satellite images over time that demonstrate both the growth of cities, and the results of changes to our environment.
Please take a look at the link and then answer the question below:
Note that in the first video, there is a small inset map that you can drag around to look at various regions. Check out the places where your family and friends live!
In your post, please comment on one of the following:
- Did you notice any patterns in the growth of the cities? What pattern? What do you think it means?
- Did you connect this to anything you know or have experienced? Explain.
I look forward to your responses!
