As a culmination of our population chapter I posed a controversial question to my AP Human Geography students: can Earth’s resources support our growing population? We read about Thomas Malthus and his theories about a population that grows exponentially (2 x 2 x 2), but sources of food that only grow arithmetically (2 +2 +2). We looked at contemporary articles that put his theory to test in our modern environment, and then took a side to the question at hand. Finally, students took their research and findings and created a Piktochart to share their analysis.
Here are some of my favorite creations…
It was our first time interacting with Piktochart, so I expected somewhat of a learning curve, but the interface was extremely user-friendly. My kids (obviously) got the hang of it pretty quickly. I’m looking forward to using this tool more in the future!

Thanks, Jamie. This looks pretty awesome! If you don’t mind, I’m going to link this entry to my own blog, Social Studies Insights, http://socialstudiesinsights.blogspot.com/
Thanks for all you do!
