For your Bio-Geo Board:
You can use
itouchmap.com\latlong.html
to find your absolute location.
Landforms (mountains, rivers, etc.), climate, vegitation, wildlife, soil, etc.
What are the main languages, food, activities, customs, and beliefs.
How many people live, work, and visit a place
.
What is it like there, what kind of place is it?

Human Characteristics
Physical Characteristics
For your Bio-Geo Board
You need 2 examples of human characteristics and
2 examples of physical characteristics of YOUR PLACE
You need your coordinates for latitude and longitude.
You will need to print out a map of your location and write out your latitude and longitude and provide 2 examples of relative location showing proof on your map.
3 types-
Formal Regions
defined by governmental or administrative boundaries
ex. states, countries, cities
Functional Regions
defined by similar characteristics
ex. Corn belt, Tornado Alley, Bible belt,
Vernacular Regions
defined by people's perspectives
ex. The South, the Middle East, the Piedmont
For your Bio-Geo Board
You are to provide 2 examples of something to do with your region
.
For Your Bio-Geo Board
You need to provide at least 2
examples of movement that
relate to you.
How do humans and the environment affect each other?
We depend on it.
People depend on the Tennessee River for water and transportation.
We modify it.
People modify our environment by
heating and cooling buildings for comfort.
We adapt to it.
We adapt to the environment by wearing
clothing suitable for summer (shorts) and
winter (coats), rain and shine.

HUMAN-ENVIRONMENT INTERACTION

For your Bio-Geo Board
You will need to provide 2 examples of H.E.I on your board
I hope now you are understanding the 5 themes of geography better and thinking about your project.
Here is the rubric that I will use to grade your project:
Here are two examples. See if you can find all 5 themes on the board that does not identify the 5 themes.

Remember that location may not be seen since it may be on the back.

Location( on the back) absolute and relative
2+ examples of movement
2 examples of physical characteristics of place and 2 examples of human characteristics of place.
2+ examples of region
2 ex. of human environment interaction
Bring in all print outs, a picture of you, extra stuff for the board, glue sticks, markers, and whatever else you need to complete your project. We will start working on these Tuesday.
Bring in the 1/2 posterboard by Tuesday
I'm really looking forward to knowing you better through these projects!
