Disclosure: I’m a passionate informal educator and I have a few years of experience as a high school teacher for English as a second language and Physics. I don’t want to say education is unneeded, I simply wish it would change for the better. So let me get on with my point. Write the name of each continent on a piece of paper and place the 7 pieces of paper in a jar or bowl or bag. Let students come up one at a time and draw out a piece of paper. Blindfold them, spin them around and then lead them to the map and let them try to fly their plane to the continent they drew. Make sure you have candy for all the students who are successful.
Business: Consumer psychologists study consumers’ behaviors to find insights that could helpful for businesses. Industrial-organizational psychologists, on the other hand, focus their attention within the company, looking for ways to increase productivity through things such as better employee selection and training or a better designed or organized workplace.

The beautiful thing about technology is how many opportunities is allows us no matter what age we are. These ten websites prove just that by offering engaging and entertaining material for kids who are not yet school-aged. I am sure there are some great sites out there that I missed, please comment and let me know if there is one I should check out for my Pre-K kid.
My nine year old son shows some talent with writing poetry and likes to read funny poetry. He has two younger siblings. We haven’t found the time to explore poetry writing like we should. I think he’d love it and be good at it. I voted for one site, Welcome to PS4K. Kid poems and stories can be submitted and voted on. I added your plexo to my recent LOTD lens, Reading Starts at Home. I hope more people vote and check out your sites.
By the way, some might ask how immersion schools like ours do on the state-wide standardized tests, which of course are administered in English. Our particular school has performed just as well (and actually a little better in certain areas) as the English-only schools. I can’t speak for all immersion schools – but I’ve read that some see a dip in the standardized test scores in the lower grades, when students are focused on acquiring the target language, but that their scores catch up and often exceed standards by the middle grades.
The above definitions show that population education involves so many activities that a single definition cannot meaningfully cover all of them. Basically, population education is designed to improve and increase people’s knowledge and awareness of the cause and consequence of population growth at the family, community, national and international levels. It aims to provide a better understanding of the relationship between population processes and dynamics on the one hand and social, cultural, and environmental conditions on the other, and to illuminate the effect of that relationship on quality of life at both the micro and macro levels.
