While we are on the theme of maps, here is another amazing map that will help shape your understanding of the world. This is an interactive population map of the US. Every person in the country is represented by a colored dot, each color represents a race (see race color key). Click “Add Map Labels” in the left hand corner and zoom in/out on the map to observe the demographics of metropolitan areas, including Lancaster. Summarize your observations of at least 3 different regions, including Lancaster City/County, in your response (try to find where you live).
