Explore South Asia Using Demographic Data

Lesson Overview

South Asia is a diverse world region of majestic landforms, ancient cultures, and rapidly expanding population,  Traditionally, students are asked to describe a country using physical features, but this lesson focuses on the use of demographic data to write inferences about a country.  Students will have a brief overview of the the seven countries of South Asia.  Then they will use the CIA World Factbook online to sort data by topic and country.  After they complete a data chart for each country, they will make inferences about the country or contrast two countries using the same topic.  Students will also learn a key economic term--Gross Domestic Product (GDP)--and relate it to other aspects of the country.
