Transcript of Leeming Geography Concepts Ms Murray

Geography SPICESS Concepts
Understand the world with 7 simple concepts
1. Examine the concept wheel (right) .
2. List the key words that only apply to one concept and define them 3.Arrange the key words that are used with more than one concept into a mind map showing how they are interconnected.

SUSTAINABILITY: leaving enough for the kids of the future
Sustainability is the ongoing capacity of the Earth to sustain life.
It is the broad social goal linking ongoing natural environment wellbeing with human (social and economic) wellbeing.
Sustainability Questions
1. List the values of water under three headings : Environmental, Social and Economic. 2. Compare water use to river flow and groundwater recharge.
3. Is our current use of dam water and groundwater sustainable?
4. What is an alternative source of water that is more sustainable?
Pan way back or Zoom up close with SCALE
Scale shows us different perspectives on the world from the close up and personal to the far far away universal.
* Close up views show us details about unique characteristics.
* Far away views reveal patterns,
relationships and broad generalisations.
SCALE questions
1. Why does the image (right) compress a far away scale into a callendar year?
2. How does the image's scale manage to combine a far-away and more close-up view?
3. Give your location using close up and far away scales. eg. local> global.
Space- the final frontier: location, distribution, pattern.
SPACE: Location & distribution of natural & human features on the Earth's surface
* Location can be described in
1) absolute terms (latitude and longitude, grid reference or street number) or
2) relative terms (how close it is to other locations on the map.
Space Questions
What features are shown on the map (right)?
Where is the location?
How are similar features distributed in Perth?
Describe your location in absolute and relative terms.
The physical & living world around us is the ENVIRONMENT
The environment includes the biosphere of living things. The biospheere xtends deep into the earth and high up into the atmosphere, including non-living parts.
The environment has intrinsic value and is essential to human wellbeing.
Environment Questions
List the values of the environment around you at the moment...
List the values of an environment that you would prefer to be in right now... What values does water add?
Write a sentence for each concept linking it with the environment. eg, Humans can change the environment.
Places, Environments & Spacial Patterns CHANGE over time.
1. Watch the youtube clip (right) and note something interesting that has changed over time. 2. Give an example of a place or pattern that was stable for a long period before an event like flood, earthquake or political decision altered it. 3 Did you accept the change quickly, gradually, or do you resist it?
INTERCONNECTION over time & space
How places, people and environment are linked over time and space
Links can be physically tangible like roads or intangible like political or economic connection.
Is the water cycle a tangible or intangible link for water?
Interconnection Questions
The road we have zoomed in on is one way the world is interconnected. Pan back and look at the scene from far away. What other examples of interconnection can you see?
Geography is the study of the world as a home for people.
Places are specific areas of the Earth's surface with characteristics that make them important to people.
Places have names and are linked to identity and culture.
Place Questions
What is this place called?
What characteristics make it special?Characteristics of places studied in geography include population, climate, economy, landforms, soils, vegetation, water resources, culture, communities,landscape, recreation, built environment and scenic quality.
