Title: The Five Themes of Geography


1
The Five Themes of Geography
  • By Miss K. Rice
  • Revised by Mr. K. Buege

2
The 5 Themes of Geography
  1. Location
  2. Movement
  3. Region
  4. Place
  5. Human/ Environment Interaction (HEI)
  6. 5 Themes of Geography video

3
Theme 1 Location
  • Where is it exactly??

4
Location
  • There are two types of LOCATION!!
  • Absolute (its exact location on the Earth)
  • Relative (its location in relation to other
    places)

5
Absolute Location
  • Absolute Location is found by using
  • Two specific line types
  • Latitude
  • Longitude

6
Absolute Location
  • Latitude Lines
  • AKA (Parallels)
  • Hint-Lat rhymes with flat.
  • Latitude lines are drawn from
  • East to West
  • Latitude lines measure
  • North to South

7
Absolute Location
  • The Major Line of LATITUDE is the
  • Equator
  • It splits the Earth into
  • the Northern and
  • Southern Hemispheres

8
Define Hemisphere
  • Half of a globe
  • (in our case the Earth)

9
Absolute Location
  • Other important lines of LATITUDE
  • 22 1/3 North Tropic of Cancer
  • 22 1/3 South Tropic of Capricorn
  • They are important because
  • They get the most direct
  • sunlight making these areas
  • the hottest places on Earth. Why?

10
Absolute Location
  • Other important lines
  • 66 1/2 North Arctic Circle
  • 66 1/2 South Antarctic Circle
  • They are important because
  • These areas get the least amount
  • of sunlight. Part of the year
  • there is no sunlight and the
  • other part of the year there
  • is no darkness. Why?

11
Absolute Location
  • Longitude Lines
  • AKA (Meridians)
  • Hint- Go Long!!!
  • Longitude lines are drawn from
  • North to South
  • Longitude lines measure
  • East to West

12
Absolute Location
  • The Major Line of LONGITUDE is the
  • Prime Meridian
  • It splits the Earth into
  • the Eastern and
  • Western Hemispheres

13
Absolute Location

N 60W 45N 45E 60S 60W 60N 30W
30S 15E 60S 75E
14
Relative Location
  • Location in relation to other places
  • Figure out where Texas is in relation to other
    states/countries
  • Question related to theme of location
  • Where is this place
  • located and how has
  • its location affected it?

15
Absolute vs Relative location
  • Absolute location- Austins absolute location is
    30º 16' N, 97º 44' W.
  • Relative location- Austin is about 80 miles
    north east of San Antonio.

16
Theme 2 Movement
  • How are people linked together?

17
Movement
  • Movement describes how
  • How people in one area contact people in other
    areas

18
Movement
  • The world is constantly changing, and places are
    affected by the movement of
  • People
  • Goods
  • Ideas
  • Physical forces
  • Technology
  • How is this place
  • changing and why?

Theme 3 Region
  • What does it have in common?

23
Region
  • A region describes
  • Areas that have something in common
  • Or
  • An area that has one or more features that make
    it different from surrounding areas.

24
  • Examples of physical regions include climates
    vegetation zones biomes general physical areas,
    such as mountains and specific physical areas,
    such as the Rocky Mountains.
  • Examples of cultural regions include Scandinavia,
    Latin America, and the Bible Belt.
  • Examples of global regions include areas with
    similar soil types, religions, climates,
    languages.
  • Examples of local regions include school
    districts, newspaper-circulation areas, and zip
    code and zoning areas.

26
Region
  • Regions are fundamental organizing units of
    geography.
  • Geographers use regions to give order to the
    earths surface.
  • We organize space into regions every day. Every
    time we refer to an area by saying
  • Im going downtown or down South, or Id
    like to live in that neighborhood, we are using
    the concept of regions.

How would you know you had left one region and
entered another? What characteristics make one
region different from another? How do you
determine the boundaries of a region?
27
Theme 4 Place

  • Every place is unique and has its own
    personality and character.

Human/Environment Interaction
  • How do we interact with our environment?

36
HEI
  • What is an environment?
  • Natural Surroundings
  • Human/Environment Interaction explains
  • How people use and change their environment

37
HEI
  • The environment influences how
  • We live
  • Example What is
  • the environment
  • like and how does it
  • affect the people who

38
HEI Global Warming
  • Global Warming
  • could be an example of
