Settlement What is settlement? Settlement is a place where people live. How/Why are settlements changing? Settlements change a lot because the function of cities are changing. 3 cities that I chose Beijing, China Seoul, South Korea Sydney, Australia
Beijing 1900 Beijing (year 1900) Less Houses Less Cars A lot of Empty Spaces Less people Farming In Beijing (year 1900), there were fewer cars, houses and people. Beijing was really a quiet city. Also, it was dispersed pattern in 1900.

Also, in that year, there were some wars between South Korea and North Korea, so most of houses were thatched houses that people could move easily and quickly. It was really different from now.

W h a t I l e a r n t I learnt a lot of things during making this power point. I am living in Beijing but I didn’t really know about settlement of this city. I could realized that it changed a lot. Also, nowadays, Beijing became a modern and great city but Chinese government said Beijing is still developing and they want to make this city to be the best city. I am from Seoul, South Korea, so I chose this city. Researching about Seoul was pretty fun and easy to me because I already knew about Seoul’s settlement. However, I was surprised when I found the picture of 1900’s. Also, I learnt so many things about Seoul. I chose Sydney because I wanted to know about Sydney which is the capital city of Australia. Also, in 2000 the Olympics was held in Sydney so it was easy to find out the differences between over 50 years. I learnt the pattern of this settlement changed a lot. Beijing China Seoul South Korea Sydney Australia
Conclusion “ No Settlement remains the same forever. Settlements CHANGE over time”
