Transcript of Region

Region By: Caleigh Regional Change Regional boundaries are what separates regions from other regions. If we didn't have regional boundaries the world would just be one big place. There are human made boundaries such as the walls of a house or the fenced in area of a yard. There are also natural boundaries like rivers or cliffs. Regional Boundaries We use regions for many different things like telling what time it is in a specific part of the world, or to tell where you can find a certain place or thing. Regions are very important because without them no one would know where they are or where they where going. Regions are many different shapes and sizes but they are all important. Regions help us know where the things we need are and how to find them. In conclusion, I think that we need regions to help us communicate and to tell us where we and everything else is. In Conclusion What Kinds of Region are There? There are many types of region that very in characteristics. Each type of region is unique. Some types of region are; wilderness regions, urban regions, rural regions, physical regions (such as: desert regions, geologic regions, landform regions), climate regions (such as: vegetation regions and soil regions), functional regions, time zone regions and human regions.
There are also smaller regions that can be found in large regions. These are regions that depend on the surroundings. For example a region that would be found inside a wilderness region is a deciduous or a coniferous region.
Out of all the regions the three main types of regions are the wilderness, urban and rural regions. What is Region? Region is any place that has specific characteristics. An example of Region is a city, country or even your school. Each of these things have definite boundaries that show how far the region goes and a set space. An urban region is an area that has little or no country side. Urban regions are usually places like towns or cities. An example of an urban region is Windsor. Urban Regions A rural region is an area that has a lot of open space and countryside, but not many towns. The number of rural regions have been decreasing do to the fact that the population is growing. Rural Regions Wilderness Regions Wilderness regions are places where no people live and the area is covered with plants. Wilderness regions are generally populated by wild animals. Wilderness regions can be places like forests or swamps. Regional change is when an aspect or characteristic of a region changes. An example of regional change is when there are new houses built in forests; the forest was a wilderness region that became a urban region. A region can also change with everyday things like the weather. When the weather changes the climate regions change. Regions change with society too. When a society changes (Ex. new buildings, new people etc.) the human regions are affected.
