Religious Adherence in the United States

Religious Adherence in the United States

In this lesson students explore spatial patterns of Jewish, Muslim and Christian religious adherence in the United States. They describe spatial distributions using pattern descriptions and relative geographic location (north, south, east, and west). They look for positive and negative spatial correlations between religious adherence and urban centers. Students also practice working with the concept of cultural regions as they define the county level- religious cores and peripheral areas.   Finally, students test a theory related to age and religious adherence and demographics.
