Observed Human Impact around Asia

For 6th grade Science, two Next Generation Science Standards focus on the impact of humans on the environment and tracking that impact, such as the use of natural resources. In our lecture, we looked at the geography of China and Korea, two areas that had gone through rapid growth and change over a few hundred years. Students will make observations of time lapse images over decades and will learn about some of the historical events that influenced some examples.
They will be able to show examples of changes to the environment due to human development and also provide solutions for sustainable use of our natural resources.
