Transcript of Copy of The Five Themes of Geography

By Brandon Dong, 792574, (2-4)
A position on the Earth's surface
Location
Places are described in terms of their physical and human characteristics.
Place
Constant motion of people, ideas, materials, and physical systems.
Movement
How people
interact
with the environment. People
depend
on,
modify
, or
adapt
to the world around them.
Human/Environment
Interactions
A region is a part of the world that has
at least ONE characteristic in common
(either human or physical) or is
connected
in some way because of the
way people use it
.

There are TWO types of regions:
formal
regions and
functional
regions.
Regions
An absolute location is your exact position on earth.
Absolute Location
Your location relative to another place on earth
Relative Location
Physical characteristics of a place are not man made but instead are formed through natural processes in the environment.
Physical Characteristics
The human characteristics of a place are anything made or done by people. For example, the Sydney Opera House is a human characteristics of Sydney, Australia.
Human Characteristics
Humans depend on their environment for things like food, shelter, and clothing.

Farming is a great example of human dependence on the environment for food.
Dependence
Humans modify, or
change
, their environment in many ways.

Building structures...

Irrigating land...

Pollution...
Modification
Humans can adapt to to almost any environment on earth.

People live in Death Valley, California (one of the hottest places on the planet!)

People live in space!
Adaptation
Formal regions are parts of the world that share a human or physical characteristic.

There are three types of formal regions... physical, political, cultural.
Formal Regions
A functional region is a group of places connected by the way people use them.
Functional Regions
People take ideas with them when they move.

Media (print or electronic) is an important tool for moving ideas from place to place.
Movement of Ideas
Physical systems move and change.

Rocks erode.

Weather systems travel.

The tides rise and fall.
Movement of Physical Systems
Coordinates are a way to distinguish absolute locations. Our school is located at 40.107356 N, 76.299217 W.
The Grand Canyon was formed through years of erosion by the Colorado River.
The Northern Lights are the result of electrically charged particles in the atmosphere.
Where are people going?

How are they getting there?

Why are they going?
Movement of People
Certain resources are only available in select locations and need to be transported to other regions lacking it.
Movement of Materials
