Week 1 Comparison Question

Hey, I had a bit of interest in the comparison activity I spoke of in my ‘Let’s get the ball rolling” post. If you are not sure what I mean, I am wanting to ask a question to compare countries cities, and had requests to compare weather each week as well. If you think this may be interesting for your class, please join in and comment below.


I chose this as I am currently teaching countries and populations and they were very interested in finding this out. We will then construct a bar graph and upload the results for you all or if you want to do he same thing, by all means.

Please help us out and tell us how many people live in your town. If you live in a town, we are just after the population of there, if you live in a suburb of a capital city, then the population of the capital city is great as well.

Thanks everyone, Ben

    In Horsham there is approximately 22,000 people. The weather here is cold, averaging 10-15 degrees celsius.

    Yaxley (Iacheslei) is mentioned in the Doomsday Book, and has since grown into a thriving community with a population in excess of 10,000. Situated one mile east of the A1M in Cambridgeshire England. The nearest city is Peterborough (4 miles)

    Summer has finally arrived here with a sunny 24 degrees celsius this afternoon – let’s hope it stays this way for the next 6 weeks.

    Brisbane has 2 074 222 people (as of 2011).
    Brisbane is named after the river on which it sits, which, in turn, was named after Scotsman Sir Thomas Brisbane, the Governor of New South Wales from 1821 to 1825.
    Brisbane has a humid subtropical climate with warm to hot and humid summers and dry, moderately warm winters.
    From November to March, thunderstorms are common over Brisbane, with the more severe events accompanied by large damaging hail stones, torrential rain and destructive winds.
    in 2011.
    There are quite a few Olympians whose hometown is Brisbane competing in the 2012 London Olympic games that we will be watching closely.
    These people include
    MATTHEW MITCHAM – diving
    BRONTE BARRATT – swimming
    KYLIE PALMER – swimming

    thanks for the input – unfortunately not enough people put in info so the graph was incredibly skewed as 2 towns have similar populations of around 10-20,000 and brisbane had 3 million – not a great graph – hahaha thanks and I will try again this week.
