Year 6 create choropleth maps in geography.

Year 6 have begun their new topic for the Spring term. We are studying Asia, with a special interest in China.

We have already found out that we have many misconceptions about China. It is such a huge country; this means that it is very diverse.

This week, we looked at the population of China and how rapidly it is growing. A choropleth map shows the density of the population using a colour scale. Can you see that some areas of China are much more populated than others?

Our next step is to find out why this might be and what the impact of high population is.
