Where do we choose to live and why?

Views: 958

Part of the Mission Geography Educator Guide. This activity is Module 2 of Mars and Earth the Quest for Life. In Investigation 1 - Where do we choose to live and why? , students use a nighttime image to observe areas of light across the United States and to identify patterns and spatial distributions of human settlements. They explain the reasons for these patterns by answering questions and making inferences about what they observe. Then this knowledge is applied to identify similar patterns and spatial distributions on an unidentified region of the world using a color topographic map and nighttime image.
