By the end of this lesson, students will be able to:

- Define population density and understand its significance in Geography;
- Calculate population density using simple formulas;
- Analyze population density patterns across different regions and countries;
- Understand the impact of population density on different aspects of human life, such as transportation, housing, education, and healthcare.

- Whiteboard and markers;
- Handouts with graphs and population data of different countries;
- Calculators.

- Greet the class and introduce the lesson topic;
- Ask students if they know what population density means;
- Write the definition on the board: "Population density is the measure of the number of individuals in a population per unit area or volume".

- Review the definition of population density and explain why it is important in Geography;
- Provide a demonstration of how to calculate population density using a simple formula: Population density = Total population / Total land area;
- Ask the students to calculate the population density of their school area or city;
- Discuss the students' answers and compare them with other regions/countries.

- Show the class a few graphs of population density patterns across different regions/countries;
- Ask the students questions about the trends they observe: Are there obvious differences between countries? Why do some areas have higher population densities than others? What factors contribute to population density patterns?
- Hand out a list of countries with their respective population densities and ask the students to group them into high, medium, and low densities.
- Discuss the characteristics of countries with different population densities.

- Summarize the key points of the lesson and reinforce the importance of understanding population density in Geography;
- Ask the students if they have any further questions or comments.

- Collect the handouts with the population data and graphs to check for students' comprehension of the lesson;
- Assign homework which will involve students calculating the population density of a specific city, region or country and writing a short essay on the environmental, economic and social impacts of high and low population densities.

- Discuss how the concept of population density is related to other Geography concepts, such as urbanization, migration, and climate change;
- Organize a field trip to a nearby area with high or low population density to observe the environmental, economic and social factors that contribute to its density.

- Provide more hand-on activities for tactile learners;
- Use visual aids for visual learners;
- Provide extra guidance for students who struggle with calculations.
