   Influences of Re-distribution
• Explain the pattern you see in the shift in
  population distribution between 1900 and 2000.

• What is the climate like in the NE United States?

• What is the climate like in the SW United States?

• What was invented that allowed for the
  population to shift from the NE to the SW
  United States?
 Fill in the Climate part of web…
• 1. How does climate affect population
  distribution?
  – People prefer mild, temperate climates, not extreme
     hot and cold climates
  2. What allows for people to live in areas that used to
     be too hot or dry to live in?
  -- Technology like A/C and irrigation help people
     adapt to warm climates
      Landforms
How do landforms or topography
 affect Population Distribution?
U.S. at Night
Physical Map of the US
    Fill in the Landform part of the
                  web..
• How do landforms affect population
  distribution?
   – People prefer to live on smooth terrain over
     mountainous terrain
   – Which physical features are present in the
     United States that affect population
     distribution?
Bodies of Water
How do Bodies of Water affect
  population distribution?
Fill in Bodies of Water part on web..
Would people want to settle near or away from
water?
•    WATER EQUALS LIFE!!
•People ALWAYS want to settle near water!!!
         •WHY?? BECAUSE OF …..

Natural Resources
 The location of natural resources
affects population distribution too.
                  Resources
• If you lived in the Sahara Desert, what natural
  resource would you have? (Discuss)

• Name a few NATURAL Resources that we have
  here in the U.S. (Discuss)

• People will settle around natural resources!!
Natural Resources
Renewable and Non-renewable
   Renewable and Nonrenewable
           Resources

Which one of the following resources is renewable
       and which one is non-renewable?
Turn to page 93 and create a T-chart labeled with
renewable resources on one side and non-renewable
resources on the other side under the Resource part of
your web . Start with the definition on each side then
list 3 examples.
