S: My Life in Geography!
BC: My house is a good representation of most of the Geographic features. Because my front door is like a long lot. It is from my house to the front yard which is my transportation for "relaxation". The individual bricks are examples of township and range because they have an even amount of space between them. My house is in an absolute location and distance. I was relocated from the kitchen to my room. My dot density of my house would be 5 dots in the living room because that is where my family usually stays around. I would paint the rooms according to what room I am located in. The media room is a dark red. And there are more examples through out my house. | CONCLUSION
FC: What in the WORLD? By: Saranya Kari Mr. Mumford, 3A
1: Central Concepts of My Geographic Life! | Point A is me, and point B is the mailbox. That is what Absolute distance means. | The picture is my backyard. Site means the physical characteristics of a place. And my backyard is bumpy and full of vegetables. | This is a scale of my World map! | The Absolute Location of the map is 30 degrees latitude and longitude. Thats Egypt, Africa.
2: Spatial Interactions in My Personal World! | This is an example of contagious diffusion because my yawn will be caught on my brother. Which will make him yawn. | This is an example of relocation diffusion because I'm being relocated from my A.C home to the warm outside. | This is a long lot example because my drive way is the lot and the alley road is the main transportation. | This picture represents township and range because each individual house is one block that belongs to them.
3: Geographic Tools I Use! | The topographic map is a tool I use for my house upstairs. The round circles indicate my room and my bed. | My World map is a chloropleth map and I use it when I have to find a location. | I use the flow line map to show how many people go from one place to another. In this case how many people go to Russia. | I use a dot density map for geography. It shows me how many people are in certain places in a country or continent. I used Africa for instance.
4: Models Help Me Understand My World! | The models in my BOK are one of many models that I use to get somewhere. Or achieve something. | The model in the top left corner is a model of a line graph, it represents study model. If I study 4 hours then I can get an A. | The model at the bottom left corner is a model of a concentric zone, it represents what test grade is good. It says that a great test grade is a 95%- 100%. | The last model at the bottom right corner is a model of a sector model that is representing a way that will help me become a doctor. I can become a doctor if I study hard and go through college. | THe globe represents the model of the Earth. It helps find out where places are in the world.
5: This represents Global Positioning System, because I am using my phone to look for Walmart. | This Technology represents Geographic Information System. I am finding the same similarities of pools in Hunters Creek. | Geographic Technology Makes My Life Better | The school that is being built behind is a good example of remote sensing because the population of kids in my neighborhood has grown over the years.
