Six population education activities presented in both English and Spanish are part of this activity pack. The first, "Population Riddles," helps students to understand just how much one billion is. The second, "Everything Is Connected," helps students to identify ways that factors in human society and the natural environment are interdependent. The third, "Something For Everyone," is a resource management activity that demonstrates the need for short-term conservation practice in the interest of preserving a long-term supply. The fourth, "Taking A Stand On U.S. Issues," discusses ethical issues related to population change and its impacts. The fifth, "Earth: The Apple Of Our Eye," uses an apple to represent the Earth and the amount of water and arable land found on it. The last activity is a population quiz with the answers. (KR)
