Transcript of The Five Themes Of Geography

The Five Themes Of Geography Place And Location Place is one of the major themes of geography because it is commonly used, for geographers and even people! Places like Mt. Fuji can't be mistaken for a place such as Niagara Falls. Place can be defined as physical or human characteristics. Each place has their own unique characteristics. Mt. Fuji is located in Japan.
It is one of the most visited places in Japan and it is on the Japanese 500 yen. It is one of the most famous volcanoes in the world. Niagara Falls is located on the border of Canada and the U.S. It has the most water out of
all the waterfalls but it is
not the highest. Many
fell down the falls in
barrels for fame and fortune. Location describes where a place is on the Earth's surface. There are two types of locations. There is relative location and absolute location. Relative location describes where one place is located in relation to another. Absolute location describes the exact location of a place. Here? Here? Relative Location Relative Location is when you use familiar locations(schools, parks, malls etc) or terms(near, far, close etc) for directions.
It is often inaccurate. Close to the park Around the mall Far from the school Absolute Location A point on the earth's surface expressed by a coordinate system such as latitude and longitude. It has to be a specific coordinate that pin points the exact location. ( Ontario, Guelph, 670 Willow Rd) Human Interaction with the Environment Human interaction describes how humans interact/use with the environment. Human interactions with the human social system and the ecosystems have been around since the beginning of human history. Pros Of Human Interactions - we grow trees, flowers, etc
- we help save injured animals

- we try to preserve our world for as long as we can
- we try to reduce exhaust fumes from cars by using electric cars or carpooling
- farmers don't use as many pesticides as they usually used to use Cons of Human Interactions - people cut plants down
- Kill animals for their own needs
- build unfinished buildings
- We throw recyclable items in garbage
- Farmers use pesticides
- Use vehicle when not needed
- Too much landfills

- sewer pipes can pollute the water Region Region is everything that surrounds a given place, how they interact and how they are alike.
Region can be Formal, Functional and Vernacular.
For example, desert, forest, continent , country ECT. Hello, today we are going to talk about the five themes of geography. The five themes of geography are place, location, human environment interaction, region and movement. All of them have a unique role in geography and we are going to tell you how. So off we go! Well now that you know that Place and Location, Human Environment Interaction, Region, and Movement are the five themes of geography and you will have a better understanding of it next time. Movement Movement is the travel of goods, people, and ideas from place to place. Airplanes and the Internet allow physical and ideological goods to be transferred long distances in short time intervals. A person's travel from place to place, and the actions they perform there, are also considered movement. Cars, trucks, trains and boats are all things that have to do with movement.
