Future Prediction of Migration, Social Groups, and Creating Cultural Mosaics
Section 2 Application
Real World Examples
In the real world migration happens in every town, state, country, and continent. For example (for country to country), loads of people in Syria are migrating over to the Europe border and they are creating refugee camps that many people call "The Jungle". They move there in groups because they want better lives hoping that they can get into Europe for a new life and jobs and homes. Many of them sneak across the border because they don't know what else to do. They are all war torn people looking for better lives but can't move all in at once so what some have to do because they are so desperate is sneak across. This is an example of migration because they are people looking for better lives that moved someplace to get that and when some people migrate that's what they look for.
Humans Creating Cultural Mosaics
When humans create cultural mosaics they are creating a piece of art. Anyone can create one. Their personality and what makes up them is what makes the mosaic. For example, countries all around the world are different and they all have their own "cultural mosaic" because it is what others see from the outside. Take the US for example. We are known for our very powerful army, our patriotism, vacation spots, and how family oriented we are. That is what people see from the outside and that is what out cultural mosaic is.
Humans and Their Social Groups
In the real world humans and their social groups come into play a lot. Humans find different social groups to fit into society so they don't feel alone. For example, in this world there are different social classes and how much money they have affects how they act with each other. There is the upper class which has all the money, there is middle class which has enough money to not go poor and to live their life (probably you and me), and then there is the lower class who's group may not know where they are going to live the next day and how they are going to get their food. This group doesn't really have money at all.

How My Life Connects to Migration, Cultural Mosaics, and Social Groups....
In my life I have migrated to different towns across NH. I don't really remember migrating but what have my parents have told me it seems like I know enough to explain how and where I have migrated to and from. Me moved when I was two because we needed a bigger house for our growing family. We lived in Bedford at the time and moved to a small house in Hooksett. Two years later we had to move again because my parents found out that they were having my little sister. We started to build a house down the street from where we were living then. A bigger and better one that fit all of our needs. This is migration because even though we moved just a town over and down the street we needed something bigger and better.
Humans Create Cultural Mosaics
In my life I have created a cultural mosaic for who I am. What makes up me is my cultural mosaic. I play lacrosse and soccer, I love my family, I will always have PA pride, and my personality all make up my cultural mosaic.
Humans and Social Groups
In my life I am part of many social groups. I am on many sports teams and have many from that (PA soccer, PA lacrosse, GPS soccer, Tomahawks Lacrosse). Since I also go to PA I have all my friends there. I am part of many different social groups with many different traits that make the group up represent who I am as a whole.
