  4. Check you prediction by adding the country to the graph and playing it again.

Use your textbook to find a definition for ‘Urbanisation.’

In your textbooks, pages 122-3, examine figures 1.1, 1.2, 1.4, what do they reveal about urban and rural populations around the world?

Watch the video below, then

  1. What do you see?
  2. What do you think about that?
