  1. EQ Essential Question How does the where you live shape how (economy, culture, development, etc.) you live?

  2. Learning Goals Today you should be able to . . . explain the causes and effects of Africa’s environmental issues. Because . . . this will help you understand how the environment shapes people and people shape the environment.

  3. Africa’s Environmental Issues • Get out a blank sheet of paper. • Title it Africa’s Environmental Issues • Write down the 5 environmental issues. Skip a couple lines between each. • deforestation • poor soil • desertification • unequal distribution of water • water pollution

  4. Africa’s Environmental Issues What do you think each term means? Talk with our partner. • deforestation • poor soil • desertification • unequal distribution of water • water pollution

  5. Africa’s Environmental Issues • deforestation • poor soil • desertification • unequal distribution of water • water pollution

  6. FYI All of these pictures are connected to our next unit on Africa’s environment.

  7. Which is which? • Number the back of your warm up paper from yesterday 1-9. • Decide which environmental issue goes with each picture. • Some pictures may represent more than one issue.

  8. Africa’s Environmental Issues • deforestation • poor soil • desertification • unequal distribution of water • water pollution

  18. Africa’s Environmental Issues • deforestation • poor soil • desertification • unequal distribution of water • water pollution

  19. How are poor soil and deforestation related?

  20. 1

  21. Slash & Burn Agriculture

  22. As windblows away the good soil, new vegetation cannot grow there anymore.

  23. Erosion

  39. Learning Goals Today you should be able to . . . explain the causes and effects of Africa’s environmental issues. Because . . . this will help you understand how people shape their environment.

  40. Purpose: What are the causes & effects of Africa’s environmental problems? EVIDENCE: • C = cause • E = effect • S = solution Cause & Effect

  41. 1) Connect → (symbol & underline) How do the ideas you are reading about connect to ideas and information you’ve already thought about or knew about? 2) Extend ∞ (symbol & underline) How has your thinking been extended in some way, taking it in new, further, or deeper directions? 3) Challenge ! (write on sheet of paper) What challengesor puzzles have come up in your mind about this document now that you’ve been presented with these new ideas and information?

  42. The Root of the Problem What is the main cause of most of Africa’s environmental problems? In other words, if you had to pick one factor driving the decline of Africa’s environment, what would it be? Use examplesof how . . . • Africa’s environmentis made worse • the peopleare affected Answer should address the cause& links between all of environmental problems. deforestation desertification poor soil water pollution unequal dist. of water
