For instance, things like natural resources, location of countries and capitals, map features like latitude and longitude, and lots of other things. coal Culture Culture is a really general term, but it explains things like traditional clothing, music, festivals, foods, and language. Culture varies widely from country to country, region to region, and continent to continent. Which cultures are you familiar with? Population Population gives us information about the people who live in a particular place. This information includes:

* Population Density- the number of people who share a specific area
* Demographics- the study of populations for data collection ( scientists who study populations are called demographers) Why do you think that information might be useful? Governments, Economies, and Religions Other important areas of human geography include governments, economies, and religions. By studying a country's governmental, economic, and religious systems we will understand a lot about that place and their people. What connections can you make between the following? Climate and traditional foods? Easy Medium Landforms and tourism? Difficult Geographical location and transportation? Conclusion Now, consider where you live...
