TUESDAY MAY 15, 2018

Warm up: Students were given time AGAIN to finish their Chapter 16 Lesson 1 questions.  I pointed out the answers in the text for anyone that needed help.  IF STUDENTS ARE NOT FINISHED FROM THIS DAY ONWARD, THEY WILL HAVE LUNCH DETENTION. 

CLASSWORK: After review of the four vocab words:

  • standard of living
  • urbanization
  • rural decline
  • spatial inequality
We proceeded to team up with one partner for our imaginary taxi cab rides to Mexico City.  We went to our first neighborhood which displayed a low standard of living.  We received 3 data points, and then with a partner, had to determine the location of where we were in Mexico City.  We also read pages 144 and filled out the answers to these two question:

What are challenges Mexican farmers face? 

Why do farmers migrate to the city?

These answers contain the answers to our vocab terms.  

Homework: YOU MUST HAVE CHAPTER 16, LESSON 1 QUESTIONS FINISHED BY TOMORROW OF YOU GET LUNCH DETENTION.  THE BOOK HAS BEEN UPLOADED FOR YOU.  NO EXCUSES.
