FC: Flight in the Sky The Story of Lulu By: Kierra "Kiki" Haight
1: Lulu is a bird on a journey to discover the world of geography. Join her as she discovers the five themes of geography.
2: Lilly set off on her journey early in the morning, just as the sun was waking up itself. What a good way to start the day, she thought. Lulu smiles to herself as she ruffled her feathers and flew into the sky.
3: As Lulu set out on her journey, she saw a lot of things. She saw some flowers, other birds, a butterfly, and a lot of trees.
4: Soon Lulu got tired and stopped to take a quick nap in a nest in a field of flowers. Yet, when she woke she was no longer in the field of flowers. No, the wind had blown the nest into the mountains.
5: Oh no, what am I going to do now? Lulu though to herself. Lulu looked around her, seeing unfamiliar things, but soon Lulu saw another little bird sitting on a branch.
6: "Excuse me," Lulu called up to the bird. The Bird looked down at Lulu. "Yes?" she asked in a rather bored voice. "I'm sorry to intrude," Lulu apologized, "but do you have any idea on how I can get home?" "Yes, I know of a way," the bird droned. "Could you please tell me?" Lulu asked hopefully.
7: "You must use geography in order to get back to you home," the bird said in a matter-of-fact tone. "Geography? What's that?" Lulu questioned. "Geography is the study of how we live, what we do, and the effects of what we do," the bird told Lulu.
8: "Oh," stated Lulu, "Is there anything else that i need to know" "Yes, there is," the bird replied. "You need to know the five themes of Geography." "The five whata?" Lulu asked? "Themes of Geography," the bird corrected. "The five themes include location, movement, place, region, and human/environmental interactions,"thaought the bird.
9: "What's location?" asked Lulu. The other bird sighed, took a deep breath, then said, "Location is the situation of people. Where people and things live."
10: "And the other types?" Lulu asked. The bird once again sighed before answering, "Movement is how people and things get around, how they travel. Also, place is how places are the same and how they are different. | Place One: | Place two:
11: "The other two?" Lulu asked. "I'm getting there young one,"the bird rearranged itself on the branch before going on. "Region is how we organize people on a map. While human/environmental interactions is relations between cultures.
12: "Well, off you go," the bird told Lulu. "Use what you have learned and find home before the Sun fully sets" Lulu thanked the bird, and off she went into the sky to find home.
13: Lulu thought back to what the bird had taught her. She looked down at the ground, using her new found geography knowledge to navigate her way home. Lulu finally flew down into her home. She was greeted by her family with hugs and chirps. Lulu was happy for her new knowledge and shared it with her family.
