  1. Activator Find the Absolute Location 41 N, 12 E 26 S, 28 E Islamabad, Pakistan. Chicago, Illinois, USA Find the Relative Locations Tokyo, Japan Buenos Aires, Argentina Mexico City, Mexico Khartoum, Sudan Identify Four Geographic Terms List the 3 Characteristics Responsible for a Regions Geography:

  2. 5 Themes of Geography

  3. What are the five themes? • Tools geographer’s use to study features on earth. • Location • Place • Human/Environment Interaction • Movement • Region Enrichment Links

  4. Location • Describes where places are at on earth. • Types of Location: • ABSOLUTE:exact location on earth (fixed) • Doesn’t change • Latitude/Longitude • Hemispheres • Grid System • Address • RELATIVE:compared to other places(variable) • Changes dependent upon where you are comparing it to. • Direction

  5. Absolute Location • Find: • 41 N, 12 E • 26 S, 28 E • Islamabad, Pakistan. • Chicago, Illinois, USA. Rome, Italy Johannesburg, South Africa 33 N, 73 E 42 N, 88 W

  6. Relative Location • Give Two Examples for Each: • Tokyo, Japan • Buenos Aires, Argentina • Mexico City, Mexico • Khartoum, Sudan East of South Korea South East of Russia East of Chile & West of Uruguay South of Texas & Northwest of Guatemala West of Ethiopia & West of Chad

  7. Place • A place is defined by its unique characteristics. • Physical characteristics • Cultural characteristics

  8. Physical Characteristics • Specificto THAT place, not generic. • Things made by nature. • Identify Four Geographic Terms. • List the 3 Characteristics Responsible for a Regions Geography: Archipelago, Badlands, Bay, Butte, Canal Canyon, Cape, Delta, Geyser, Glacier Gulf, Isthmus, Jungle, Lagoon, Lake, Mesa Ocean, Plain, Peninsula, River, Sea Sound, Swamp, Tundra, Valley Temperature Precipitation Natural Vegetation

  9. Human (Cultural) Characteristics • Specificto THAT place, not generic. • Things made by human. • Man-made or invented. • Language • Unique buildings • Religious Practices • Celebrations/traditions/holidays • Examples: • Portuguese is the official language of Brazil. • Many Mexicans are Catholic. • Mayan ruins are located in Mexico.

  10. Human/EnvironmentInteraction • How humans depend on, adapt to, and modify the environment • Consequences to those actions depend upon how people choose to interact with the world and use their resources. • Positive/Negative • Intentional/Accidental • Favorable/Destructive

  11. Human/EnvironmentInteraction • Questions • How humans depend on the environment? • How humans adapt to the environment? • How humans modify the environment? • Current Environmental Issues: • Climate Change (global warming) • Energy Resources • Water Conservation • Deforestation

  12. Movement • How do humans interact on earth? • Places do not exist in isolation. Today: “globalization” • Four categories: People, Goods (products), Ideas (intangible items), and Services. • Examples • Immigration from Latin America to US. • War in Iraq (troops, supplies, ideas, people) • MySpace, Facebook (ideas)

  13. Regions • Areas that are similar in terms of physical and cultural characteristics • Questions • How is the country similar to any of its neighbors: • Religion  Landforms • Languages  Government • Vegetation  Industries • Climate  Culture • Types: • Physical • Cultural

  14. Physical Regions • Includes the features • Landforms • Climate • Soil • Natural vegetation • Examples • Ukraine is an agricultural region because the vegetation is tropical. • Central America (Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama) • Latin America (Spanish-speaking nations) • Tropics (countries located near equator)

  15. Cultural (Human)Regions • Includes the features: • Political • Religions • Languages • Examples: • Tokyo and Detroit are both automobile manufacturing regions because that is where cars are produced. • Hollywood • Havana, Cuba

  16. Perceptual Regions • Groups of areas that provoke a certain stereotype or feeling. • Examples: • The Bronx • The “ghetto” • China town

  17. Enrichment Assignment • “What does each theme look like?” • Use the graphic organizer to visually represent each of the fives themes of geography. (Think Comic Strip) • You may ONLY use words to label each circle. • Your pictures should clearly describe the theme. • Be creative, colorful, and thoughtful.
