Students will describe the geodemographics of former French colonies in Africa as defined by the human development index, population densities, birth and death rates, life expectancy. Students will compare the geospatial patterns of data with geospatial data for natural resource reserves on the African continent. Students will use this information to analyze and hypothesize, and/or make predictions about the development and stability (past, present or future) of former French colonies. This resource includes both a teaching guide and student lesson.
