Thursday 10 th April

DO NOW:

What % of NZ’s population live within 40km of the coast?

What kind of pattern does Q1 make?

Name 6 major cities around the coastline of NZ that would help to back up this argument.

Learning Intention: I will be able to describe the historical factors that have created NZ’s population patterns. Distribution Patterns of NZ population

Task 1: DISCUSS what we talked about yesterday Cities around NZ are located close to the coast because historically this is where boats were able to land. When the first settlers arrived there were no roads or bridges – so people settled close to the coast where the ports were located or rivers where people could travel and trade by water transport. Townships sprawled outwards as their populations grew. People wanted to live near the towns because they would have good access to the facilities and infrastructure the towns provided.

DISCUSS what we talked about yesterday

Cities around NZ are located close to the coast because historically this is where boats were able to land. When the first settlers arrived there were no roads or bridges – so people settled close to the coast where the ports were located or rivers where people could travel and trade by water transport.

Townships sprawled outwards as their populations grew. People wanted to live near the towns because they would have good access to the facilities and infrastructure the towns provided.

Task 2: Complete a survey of the size of cities along the main highways around NZ. Extra Experts Write 2 generalisations for your findings. Most of the urban areas between the big cities are smaller.

Task 2:

Extra Experts

Write 2 generalisations for your findings.

Most of the urban areas between the big cities are smaller.

Task 3: Understanding the pattern of our survey. Most of the urban areas between the major cities are quite small. Some are so small that if you blinked, you would miss them when driving past them. This has occurred because the of the change in transport technology. When the settlers first arrived they travelled by horse and cart. The horses could only travel so far without a break, so small towns grew up where people needed to stop and have a break. Then trains enabled people to travel further. This meant that the towns where the trains did not need to stop and have a “break” in did not grow, whereas the towns where the trains did stop continued to grow. Today cars are the main form of transport. The areas that have stopped growing as urban areas are the places that cars do not need to stop and refuel at. For example when travelling from Wellington to Auckland, you only really need to stop at Taupo. This has meant that areas that are service towns still have got bigger, but towns that are no longer major service towns have either stayed the same or got smaller.
