THE FIVE THEMES OF GEOGRAPHY
  • Location
  • Place
  • Human-Environment Interaction
  • Movement

LOCATION Where are we?
  • Absolute Location
  • A latitude and longitude (global location) or a
    street address (local location).
  • Paris France is 48o North Latitude and 2o East
    Longitude.
  • The White House is located at 1600 Pennsylvania
    Ave.
  • Relative Location
  • Described by landmarks, time, direction or
    distance. From one place to another.
  • Go 1 mile west on main street and turn left for 1
    block.

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.

5
All places have characteristics that give them
meaning and character and distinguish them from
other places on earth.
Macchu Picchu
Zocalo
Place
6
Places have both human and physical
characteristics.
Physical characteristics include things that
occur naturally, such as mountains, rivers, and
Wildlife.
Grand Tetons
Place

Tulum
Human Characteristics are things that have
changed due to people, such as roads and
buildings.
How Did The Maya Change Their Environment Here?

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

9
Human-Environment Interaction is the relationship
between people and their environment and how they
work together.
The Golden Gate Bridge is an example of how we
interact with our environment to help us get from
one place to another.
Human-Environment Interaction
10
The Incas building terraces in the Andes
Mountains is an example of how humans can
interact with their environment in a positive way.
Inca Terraces
When humans interact with their environment there
can be positive and negative results.
They were able to grow food even though they
lived in the Mountains!
Human-Environment Interaction
11
Humans can also interact with their environment
in negative ways.
Over Crowding!
Dumping Waste!
Human-Environment Interaction
12
Humans have interacted with their environment for
many years.

The Inuit for example used what they had within
their environment to build a home.
Trees ?
Rocks?
Mud and Grass?
Or . . .
Ice and Snow!
Human-Environment Interaction

MOVEMENT
  • How are people, goods, ideas moved from place to
    place?
  • Human Movement
  • Trucks, Trains, Planes
  • Information Movement
  • Phones, computer (email), mail
  • Idea Movement
  • How do fads move from place to place?
  • TV, Radio, Magazines

The patterns of movement of people, products,
and information is another theme of Geography.
Movement
15
Why did they come here?
The First Americans coming across the Bering
Strait around 30 thousand years ago is an example
of movement. . .
They were following their food!
Movement
16
Trading goods with other groups around the world
is another example of Movement.
We sell cars to many Countries around the world
(Exports).
Movement

We buy many goods from other Countries (Imports).
This is another example of movement.

REGIONS
  • How are Regions similar to and different from
    other places?

    boundaries (States, Countries, Cities)

    Belt, Rocky Mountain region, Chinatown).

  • Regions defined by a function (newspaper service
    area, cell phone coverage area).
  • Vernacular Regions (Not in your book)
  • Regions defined by peoples perception (middle
    east, the south, etc.)
