HUMAN-ENVIRONMENT INTERACTION
  • How do humans and the environment affect each

  • We depend on it.
  • People depend on the Tennessee River for water
    and transportation.
  • We modify it.
  • People modify our environment by
  • heating and cooling buildings for comfort.
  • We adapt to it.
  • We adapt to the environment by wearing
  • clothing suitable for summer (shorts) and
  • winter (coats), rain and shine.

LOCATIONWhere are we?
  • Absolute Location
  • a street address (local location).
  • The White House is located at 1600 Pennsylvania
    Ave.
  • Relative Location
  • Described direction or distance. From one place
    to another.
  • I LIVE NEXT TO WALMART

You are Here

PLACE
  • What is it like there, what kind of place is it?
  • Human Characteristics
  • What are the main languages, customs, and
    beliefs.
  • How many people live, work, and visit a place.
  • Physical Characteristics
  • Landforms (mountains, rivers, etc.), climate,
    vegetation, wildlife, soil, etc.

Review
  • Movement -- What are the patterns of movement of
    people, products, and information? A study of
    movement includes learning about major modes of
    transportation used by people, an area's major
    exports and imports, and ways in which people
    communicate (move ideas).

13
Regions -- How can Earth be divided into regions
for study? Regions can be defined by a number of
characteristics including area, language,
political divisions, religions, and vegetation
(for example, grassland, marshland, desert, rain
forest). Human-environment interaction -- What
are the relationships among people and places?
How have people changed the environment to better
suit their needs?
14
Location -- Where are things located? A location
can be specific (for example, it can be stated as
coordinates of longitude and latitude or as a
distance from another place) or general (it's in
the Northeast). Place -- What makes a place
different from other places? Differences might be
defined in terms of climate, physical features,
or the people who live there and their
traditions.

CLASS WORK
  • Use the newspaper, magazines, to cut out an
    example of each of the five themes of geography
    (Use your notes to help you find examples.)
  • Paste or tape the examples to a piece of paper,
    leave room for some writing.
  • Next to each example you cut out, write what
    theme it represents and a sentence stating why it
    represents that theme.
  • Ex. Location (Picture of a car accident from a
    paper) This picture shows relative location
    because it portrays an accident by the Drive-In
    Theatre on Highway 52 two miles west of
    Everywhere, USA.
