1: Now you can learn about the Six Themes of Geography all before you leave for school | The World in Spatial Terms Places and Regions Physical Systems human Systems Environment and Society The Uses of Geography
2: Do you think about geography when eating your breakfast waffles? You could. A round waffle is like a compass. | The top of the waffle is North, the right is East, the bottom is South, and the left is West.
3: Knowing where you are whether it be home, school, or somewhere on vacation, how to get from one point to another is using spatial geography.
4: Studying geography is a lot like studying foods. We eat grains, vegetable, fruits, dairy, fats and oils, and meat and beans. Just like there are food groups there are different regions of the United States. Where you live in the US or the world, affects the way you live. Eating different foods helps you have a balanced diet. Studying about different regions in the country and other parts of the world helps you understand differences in cultures and customs, places and regions.
6: Everyday you are called upon to think about our worlds limitations and what you can do to help protect our Earth | Environment and Society
7: Now that you have finished your waffle and are almost ready to get ready for school, do you offer to help clean up? Did you eat a frozen waffle? Is that box empty? What about your plastic bottle of orange juice or carton of milk? Are they empty? Was mom or dad reading the newspaper? Sort the trash, load the dishwasher, and recycle.
8: Looks like it's time to get ready for school. How is the weather today? Is it cold enough for a jacket, or warm enough for shorts and a tee shirt? Will it rain during recess? These are some things your mom needs to know so she can properly clothe you. And she can find out by watching the local weather channel.
9: Understanding climate change in your area and other regions will help you make many smart decisions
10: Now that you've eaten a substantial and healthy breakfast, are dressed and ready for the day ahead, how do you get to school? | Car Rider? | Bus Rider? | Bike? | Walk?
11: Once you got to school did you forget something? Don't worry I'm sure your teacher will let you use the phone to call mom or dad. Which by the way is another example of human systems.
12: Now, you're finally to school. The place you are most likely to learn the most about The Uses of Geography. | Here you can study the history of Earth, discuss events that changed our world, and read maps.
13: You may ask "When will I need to know how to use this?" Well just like you did today you will now use it everyday and will be more aware of how and why our world works the way it does.
