2 Additional Resources, Materials, and Equipment Required Hard copy versions of the map A Developing World or access to the Canadian Geographic website Map of Sub-Saharan Africa Human Development Index (HDI) classification Statistics and graphs on population, education, poverty and hunger, environment, health, and HIV/AIDS (These can be obtained by visiting and following the links listed under Themes. ) Copies of the attached Student Activity Sheets Main Objective Students will compare Canada with Sub-Saharan Africa by using maps and a variety of print information, and will gain a better understanding of some the concepts of human geography. Learning Outcomes By the end of the lesson, students will be able to: use graphs, tables, legends, and various types of maps to collect geographic information; locate specific countries on maps; identify and clarify a problem, issue, or inquiry; gather and organize a body of information from primary and secondary print and nonprint sources, including electronic sources; conduct a comparative analysis of a Sub-Saharan African country and Canada, using a variety of demographic, economic, social, and environmental indicators; cooperatively plan and implement a course of action that addresses the problem, issue, or inquiry initially identified.

4 Literacy Rate Student Activity Sheet #1: Human Geography Terms Literacy rate is the percentage of adults in a given population who are able to read. Canada s literacy rate is about 99 percent. What things might influence the literacy rate? Life Expectancy This statistic estimates the number of years that an average person is expected to live from the time of their birth. In Canada, life expectancy is 82 years for women and 78 years for men. What things might influence life expectancy? Standard of Living (GDP Per Capita) Standard of living measures how well people live. It uses dollar amounts in a common currency (US\$), adjusted to how much can be purchased in that country for US\$1, to determine the average income of each person in a country (GDP per capita). The GDP per capita income for 2012 for Canada is \$41,500. What things might influence standard of living? Infant Mortality Rate Infant mortality is the number of infants who die before they reach age 1, per 1,000 live births. The infant mortality rate for Canada for 2004 is 4.8 babies/1,000 live births. What things might influence infant mortality? Human Development Index (HDI) The HDI is an index designed to compare development between countries, using a variety of factors so that the countries can be ranked. The HDI compares life expectancy, adult literacy rates, school enrolment, and standard of living. A high HDI means that a country is well developed in these areas (e.g. Canada=0.943). A low HDI means that a country is not well developed in these areas, and that people often struggle just to survive (e.g. Ethiopia=0.359). Why is calculating the HDI useful?

Explore other factors influencing the country, such as poverty and hunger, education and literacy rates, health (infant mortality), environment, HIV/AIDS.* Given the statistics on the map, are these things improving or getting worse, and how do they compare with Canada? (*Hint you will need to use the information for the Sub-Saharan African region here and not the data for your individual country.) 2. Try to explain the differences you see between the Sub-Saharan African country you have been assigned and Canada. The best way to do this is to take each indicator for each country in turn and ask yourself Why is it like this?
