2: Location

3: Location? Where in the world? Location is where one is on earth. It can be the absolute location or the relative location. The absolute location refers to the latitude and longitude measurements or a street address. The relative location describes landmarks and distances from one place to another.

4: PLACE

5: Places have both Physical and Human characteristics Physical - Mountains, Rivers, Soil, Beaches, and Wildlife Human - Ideas and actions of people that result in change to the environment (Buildings, Roads, Clothing, and Food Habits)

6: Interaction Between People And Their Environment

7: People interact with their environment and may : ADAPT, MODIFY, OR DEPEND on their environment. Depending on climate, people may build different types of shelter. In Antartica, people build igloos to keep warmth from the freezing wind. For even greater warmth, people wear thicker clothing and show close to no skin, which may be the reason some culture seem to dress differently.

9: People depend on their environment to provide food, shelter, or even electricity. The Chinese Dam is used to create hydroelectric energy from the environment. Cultures may differ on entertainment because some may lack electricity to provide goods such as tv or computers.

10: Movement Movement

11: Movement shapes our world because trade, travel and communication occur everywhere across the world. Both humans and ideas move in forms of fashion, fads, and travel. The reason why cultures are made so diverse is because of this travel and that is why its so important.

12: Region

13: A region is an area that displays a coherent unity in terms of the government, language, or possibly the landform or situation. A region is usually graphed on map and shows different secions of land or water. There are three types of regions Formal Region: United States Funtional Region: United Staes Airline Service Area: Middle East Vernacular Region:

15: A region can be small or large. Regions relate to culture because they have their own language and governemnt. (according to the definition) Another example of regions relating to culture is that some regions are located near the ocean and that could affect a persons way of life (daily activites, food, etc.)
