More developed countries (MDCs)
AKA developed countries
Lesser developed countries (LDCs)
AKA emerging or developing countries
GDP PER CAPITA
Students per teacher, primary school level. Primary school teachers have much larger class
sizes in LDCs than in MDCs, partly because of the large numbers of young people
in the population (Also, refer to Fig. 2-15).
There is a physician for every 500 or fewer people in most MDCs, while thousands of people share a doctor on average in LDCs. Especially in rural areas. Urban areas tend to be much better served.
Daily available calories per capita as percent of requirements. In MDCs, the average person consumes one-third or more over the required average minimum, which accounts for the obesity found in North America and some affluent countries.
In LDCs, the average person gets only the minimum requirement or less.
Students will color and label on maps, where the MDCs and LDCs are located.
Students will work on worksheet, comparing LDCs and MDCs.
