HOW DO YOU INTERACT WITH THE ENVIRONMENT ON A DAILY BASIS?

Geography is the the study of earth, and GEOGRAPHERs use the 5 themes of GEOGRAPHY to help organize INFORMATION about earth and its people!

  1. Location: where it is at
  2. Place: its human and physical features
  3. Regions: group places that have something in common
  4. Movement: how people, goods, and ideas get from one place to another
  5. Human-Environment Interactions: how people effect their environment

HUMAN-ENVIRONMENT interaction:

  • This theme explores how people affect their environment, or their natural surroundings, and how their environment effects them
  • Land use: farming, recreation, transportation, etc.
  • Settlement patterns: villages, cities
  • Water use: dams, reservoirs, etc.
To have a better understanding of how we impact our environment, lets look at the Lorax!

  1. What is human-environment interactions?
  2. How do we have an effect on the environment that we live in?
