Civics Global Perspective

  1. 1. How do you view the world?
  2. 2.  Using the blank page provided, draw a map of the world.  Try and name as many continents/oceans/countries as possible.  DO NOT look at any maps or electronic devices, this is to be done by memory.
  3. 3.  Answer the following questions after comparing your map with an actual map of the world: 1. What parts of the map did you draw reasonably accurately? 2. What parts of the map did you draw very inaccurately? 3. What areas did you find the most difficult to draw/label countries?
  4. 4. 4. After comparing the two maps, why were you able to draw and label some parts of the world but unable to do so for others? ◦ Be specific and think about how your life has influenced your perspective on the world.
  5. 5.  The following map compares the richest and poorest countries in the world based upon GDP Per Capita.  Gross domestic product (GDP) is the market value of all goods and services produced within a country in a given period of time.  ‘Per Capita’ averages this number per citizen in the specific country.
  6. 6.  GDP represents the overall standard of living of an individual in a country.  Looking at the map, make two observations about average standards of living around the world and where they might be located.
  7. 7.  We live in a country that is on the higher end of GDP and most of us take that for granted.  Using the sheet provided, answer the following questions with 5 responses for each.  Answer in sentence form. Explain your answers in more than a few words.  When finished, attach the sheets together and submit them to the teacher.
