2: The World in Spatial Terms
3: There are a variety of maps available. These maps are displayed from a birds-eye view indicating land levels, vegetation, etc. Learning how to use these maps, other geographic representations, and technologies are helpful for gathering and processing specific information about a location | If you were up in the air, major roads, land features or regions can help create mental maps. Locating people, places and environments is made easier using these mental maps. | Once you have a mental view of the people, places and environments on earth’s surface you can think about those people, places and environments make decisions and notice the results.
4: Places and | Regions
5: Places have physical and human qualities all their own. | People create regions as they figure out earth’s complicated environment. | A person’s culture and experiences affect how they see and understand places and regions.
6: Physical System
7: A lot of things such as erosion, wind and water can change the way earth’s surface looks. | Earth’s surface has many different types of ecosystems which vary based on specific features, their size, and their location.
8: The Uses of Human Systems
9: Humans change the earth’s surface by population. People move around or spread out. This activity makes a difference to the earth’s surface. In order to get the overall look of a puzzle, you need to look at each individual piece to see where and how each piece fits with the ones close to it. To make up an overall look of the earth, you should consider the special features of each culture individually. When looking at an individual culture you can see how it stands alone. Even though it stands alone it is connected to many other areas/cultures. These connections with others create patterns and arrangements on the earth’s surface. Sometimes patterns occur based on where people decide to settle. There are different processes and functions that show up in every settlement. Depending on cooperation and conflict people can influence the division and control of the earth’s surface.
10: Environment and Society
11: How humans act affect the way the environment looks. | How physical systems effect the human body system. | The changes that occur in the use, distribution or giving out, and importance of resources or items that are from nature.
12: G e o g r a p h y
13: Geography changes and holds clues that historians and scientist can interrupt to tell about the past. | How to apply maps and geography to predict what will happen in the present and to make plans for the future.
