WORLD GEO END OF YEAR REVIEW!
Absolute vs Relative
Absolute Location of Dallas:
32.78 degrees N, 96.8 degrees W
Absolute tells you
where a place is!!!
(about) where a

The United States is north of Mexico
Low Literacy Rate
Shorter Life Expectancy
More people farming
than work in offices or stores
High infant mortality rate
Because of the Earth's tilt the sun's rays are not
distributed equally across the whole earth...
Because of the earth's tilt, the sun's rays are generally the strongest on what line of latitude throughout the year?
The Northern Hemisphere's Summer Solstice is the Southern Hemisphere's Winter Solstice...
A place where culture originates and spreads to other places.
What two cities in AMERICUH! are cultural hearths?
Absolute = The exact degrees of Latitude/Longitude
Abilene, TX is 32'N, 99'W
(N)orth = North of the Equator
(S)outh= South of the Equator
(E)ast = East of the Prime Meridian
(W)est = West of the Prime Meridian
All living things!
Why most of dem peeps be livin on the east side of China?
Everything to the West of the Ural Mts. is European Russia
Everything to the East of the Urals is Siberian Russia
P.S. "Imm"igrate and "Em"igrate have similar prefixes.
Immigrate= to enter into a nation
Emigrate= to exit a nation

4.) Drool on desks from students sleeping in class...
But I ain't trippin' though...
Remember...the Aswan High Dam
-Created Huge Lake that farmers use for irrigation
-The flood water from the Nile flows into this lake, instead of onto the river banks, where it deposits rich sediment that naturally fertilizes the ground.
As a result, farmers have to use expensive fertilizers.
-The aquifer (underground water table) remains unusually high because of the lake created by the dam. This causes the salt levels in the soil to increase, making the soil more acidic. Sounds good for farming, right?? Wrong!
When it's summer in the Northern Hemisphere...
it's ______ in the Southern Hemisphere.
The 4 SPHERES!!!!
And don't you dare forget about
When the denser oceanic plate converges with
the less dense continental plate. The oceanic plate
dives below the continental, causing magma to rise up
out of a

more and more...a
Many islands today are volcanoes.
Yaks goin hard in the paint...
Tundra = Frozen area...not much grows except mosses and lichens.
It sucks living here...
stay in school kids!
Europe has been a cultural hearth for centuries upon centuries...
China has as well!
Government is in

State Planned, State Run, State Sponsored
government has a
control to the people
to build up the economy.
= citizens own it and not government
Typically, you will find

a country that chooses
as the governmental structure.
Remember...the Cold War was between
Democratic (Democracy) U.S.A.
It's called the "Cold" War because
missiles never got hot between the two nations. Both nations wanted
to see their government styles spread, and BOTH were willing to stop
the other from forcefully spreading their styles.
I don't like your SWAG,
Remember, Russia is no longer
They are now
Remember...the Sahara isn't all just sand dunes. It has some rocky gravel and even mountainous areas. The Sahara is expanding south into the Sahel...it's called desertification, fool!
is the huge natural resource!
It is SW Asia's huge
Saudi Arabia (the largest country on the Arabian Peninsula) has NO RIVERS!
So how do they get fresh water??
80% of Russians live in European Russia (the smaller part). It's home
to Russia's 2 most influential cities (Moscow and St. Petersberg.) Why?
Rhymes with Zorthern Buropean Train.
Western Europe is more like America. Eastern Europe is more similar to Russia. Western Europe tends to be more developed while some parts of Eastern Europe are developing/newly industrialized (they also used to be communist when Russia was communist.)

: what a nation sells to other nations.
It's always better to have a higher export number than import number for your country.
A product one country buys from another country.
This is a joke!
LONG LIFE EXPECTANCY
If you can read this and
write this, you are
Hang on...it says here
that school is actually
valuable for my life and
educated citizens keep
a nation more developed!
So I guess I should tell a teacher how thankful I am
for their hard work...and that it's changing my life
by educating me! Yeah, I think I'll do that!
Remember, the Europeans colonized much of the world
for many centuries...a lot of cultural diffusion happened
because of this.
THE COLUMBIAN EXCHANGE
Europeans gave the Native Americans
diseases. These diseases killed huge portions
of Native American populations because their
immune systems were not used to these
Kinda unfair, huh?
What are some push factors?
What are some pull factors?
3 Gorges Dam in China...Modification or Adaptation?
Or slash and burn farming
How do people interact with the environment?
2 Types of H-E-I:
1.) Modification--we actually change the environment
2.)Adaptation--we change ourselves to adjust to the environment
Wearing a jacket: Modification or Adaptation?
Modification or Adaptation?
Haters gonna hate!
_____ people out of their homeland/region!
______ people to a new country/region.
Here's the deal:
Whenever we humans MODIFY the environment, we run the risk of harming it. Polluting rivers, the air, land... Destroying animal habitats (disrupting food chains, causing extinction).
In past times,
people didn't realize these negative effects
didn't really care
world understands we must
take care of the earth!
Often, less developed nations/societies pollute

We're getting better though!

ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY
especially when they are at the same __________???
Warm ocean currents from the equator drift northward toward Europe...warm water warms the air, right? Then, WESTERLY WINDS blow
that warm air across Western Europe.
NORTH ATLANTIC DRIFT
What wind system effects the climate and economic
activities of South Asia???
What are its effects (positive and negative?)
When you take
What was Colonialism/Colonization?
The Europeans wanted Africa's
Effects of Colonization/Colonialism:
--They took many natural resources and left
--The Europeans didn't develop African nations (they sent the resources/money back to Europe.)
--Different African ethnic groups were forced to live together and work for the Europeans. When the Europeans left, these ethnic groups fought in civil wars against each other for power.
BUT AFRICA is not hopeless! There are many things happening in the world RIGHT NOW that are helping Africa to heal and develop and restore!!!
This is something Coach Rogers is very passionate about...ask him to tell you some crazy stories soon about Uganda and how it is being restored!
based on set facts/data/boundaries

You are about to watch
a quick video about the
spread and distribution
of major world religions.
tudy their current distribution by reading
where they currently are when the video ends.
Don't move on too quickly...
Remember, pockets of

Last Video of the presentation...
If you made it through this review...then you will definitely fare better on
the EOC than she did on that video.
Thanks for all of your hard work and GOOD LUCK!
THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
created jobs for people to work behind machines...inside of factories. More products could be made in a day, and people could make a consistent paycheck.
Societies went from people making products in their homes, to people working in factories...
When people made products in their homes, it was (and is) called
. Cottage is another word for home. They're just
making enough to sell a little and "get by."
When people make products in large quantities and sell them for a big profit, it's called
We's be making products for PROFIT!
BIG MONEY! BIG MONEY! BIG MONEY!
Mo' Money, Mo' Problems!
This was Coach Rogers' JAM in '96!!!
Much of Eastern Europe was formerly communist, while Western Europe was democratic...so they were divided! TODAY, Europe has made great efforts to unite and become a stronger continent,
You youngsters ain't about THIS LIFE!!

Northern Hemisphere's Summer Solstice
is when the
direct rays of the sun
are on the
Tropic of Cancer.
Our Summer Solstice is the Southern Hemisphere's Winter Solstice...the day the Tropic of Capricorn gets the least amount of sunlight...
Why are there different climates?
Because the Earth is tilted, it gets different levels of sunlight at different places. The further you are North/South of the equator, the less sunlight.
The closer you are, the more sunlight.
So, latitude effects your climate and
so does elevation.
Also, how close you are to the
ocean...and the direction of wind currents.
World Population Growth:
Around what year did the world population jump up?
(read the graph to answer this question)
#Industrial Revolution (machines helped us farm...less starvation)
#Better Healthcare (vaccines, medicine)
#Better sanitation (cleaner water/better waste disposal)
It's depressing to talk about
, but it's when
one group of people tries to kill off another ethnic group.
1.) The Holocaust (Hitler killed well over 6 million Jews). It is
one of the great shames of modern history.
2.) In 1994, ethnic Hutus killed about 800,000 Tutsis in Rwanda
to prevent the Tutsis from taking power.
You guys know all about Push/Pull factors...
BUT you need to know there are different types.
--war, genocide, no rights
--lack of jobs, hunger, bad living conditions
--Natural disasters, climate

This slide was inspired by:
"Hey, I can't talk...I'm in a huge crowd...
and I'm reviewing for the EOC!"
Dang, I just wanted to tell you real quick
that Coach Rogers go hard in the paint.
If you live a good life, then you will move into the next
caste in the next life when you are "reincarnated."
But if you're a jerk your whole life,
then you get reincarnated into a lower caste.
This process of moving up and down the caste based on your behavior
in life is known as "karma" in Hindu culture...
Airplane travel has contributed to the spread
of pandemics. "Johnny American" coughs his virus
on "Ponce Frenchman"...and they both go back to their
countries. Now France is at risk from one American's sickness.

REALLY HAPPENED, FOOL
Talk with your partner and conclude about the following examples:
In what type of nation do you think you'll find slash and burn farming?
Why do you think this is?
BECAUSE THEY ARE ONLY CONCERNED
WITH SUBSISTING AND
DOING WHAT IT TAKES TO SURVIVE!
See the tension?...
This was Little Coach's Jam in 1991, son!
Now Coach is all grown up and married...and THIS is his jam!!!
The fact that coach can search the internet in an air-conditioned room
for youtube videos of old songs--instead of starving for his next meal says that he lives in a __________ developed nation.
Mountain and Basin
Mountain and Basin
is a great example of:
--Cultural Convergence...which leads to CULTURAL DIFFUSION
Less Developed------Newly Industrialized------More Developed
Mining--gems and metals
Manufacture means "to make" something
Factories making cars, furniture, planes
Jobs that offer a service...
salesmen/women, police, musicians, actresses/actors, internet installers, bankers, department store workers
We North Africans look more
like and live more like
SW Asians than than we look like
That's Real Talk,
Don't get salty with me, son!
Sub-Saharan Africa is everything below the Sahara Desert
There are hundreds and hundreds of different tribes found in the Sub-Saharan Countries...
No, they don't speak "African."
"African is not a language, just like Africa is NOT A COUNTRY!
Africa is a CONTINENT with hundreds of tribes and over 2,000 spoken languages!
Know anyone who is fluent in around 3 to 6 different languages?
Many of the Sub-Saharan Africans at A-High speak many languages!
The Balkan Peninsula (in Europe) is an
region with over 10 countries...
So...there are many different ethnic groups in a small
space. Often, this can lead to __________ tensions.
(rhymes with tethnic bensions)...

Mostly Christian and
Animism (tribal religions)

coming together to basically form
1 world culture
The Balkan Wars
Many of these nations were in the former country called "Yugoslavia."
But remember, they are their own nations now according to ethnic groups.
Tensions still exist today.
Can you tell me why??
1. It's because the Sahara is expanding due to drought
2. Nomadic subsistence herders (traveling herders) are letting their animal herds overgraze on the Sahel. They're not giving it a break and it weakens the soil, allowing wind to blow it away!
Dubai (in the United Arab Emirates) has harvested and exported oil...using the money to boost other parts of their economy! Wow!
Dubai in 1950
Most of the SW Asian (Middle East) nations are located on the
Arabian Peninsula. Which is the largest country on the Arabian Peninsula?
Even though Greenland is near North America, it belongs to Denmark, which
is in EUROPE. So Greenland is technically part of Europe.
