Transcript of Five Themes of Geography

Five Themes of Geography
Examples of Human-Environment Interaction:
How do people
depend
on the environment?
Example:
In ancient times, the annual flooding of the Nile River produced good soil for growing crops.
Location
Tells you where someone/something is.

There are two different types of locations:
Absolute:

A location can be absolute (
specific
) as in coordinates of a map using
longitude and latitude

Relative:
A location can be relative (
not exact
)
examples: next door,
nearby
, a short drive, down the road a ways. Or, it can be in the same general location as another location - example:
next to
the post office.
Place
A place is an area that is

defined by everything in it.

All places have features that give them personality and distinguish them from other places.

If you refer to your
school as a place
, then that place would include:
Walls, windows, gym, cafeteria,
classrooms, people, clothing, books,
maps, mops, brooms, hallways,
and everything else in the school, including the languages spoken!
Region
A region is an area that is
defined by certain similar characteristics
.

Those unifying, or similar, characteristics
can be physical, natural, human, or cultural.

Can you think of an example?
Northern New Jersey vs. Southern New Jersey

Movement
Movement refers to the
way people, products, information and ideas move
from one place to another.

This can be

local
:
how did you get to school today?

It can be
global
:
how did humans get to North America?
Human -Environment Interaction
Human-environment interaction looks at the
relationships
between
people
and their
environment.

This means…
How people
adapt
to the environment and how they
change
it.

How do people
modify
the environment?
Example:
The ancient Egyptians built irrigation ditches to help water the crops. In modern times, Egypt built a dam to control the flood waters of the Nile River.)
How to people
adapt
to the environment?
Example:
The ancient Egyptians rebuilt their homes each year, after the annual flooding. As time went on, they built their homes above the flood plain.
