Where will all the people go?

I like to challenge students with open-ended questions that encourage them to think about new possibilities. This was behind today’s set of “Big Questions” in our integrated studies class:

With over 7 billion people on earth and more being added daily, where will people live as usable space is slowly being used up?

How will this impact the use of agricultural land world-wide?

Are there human migration patterns that can help us predict the future?

Can we really support so many people on Earth?
