1: The year was 1879, on March 14th in Ulm Germany. Alby was just born and the stork was taking him to his home. Then all of a sudden the stork had a genius idea. He decided to take alby on an adventure all threw out the world to teach him about geography.
3: The baby said " Where are you taking me Mr. Stork?" The Stork said "I'm taking you on a journey around the world so we can learn about the 5 themes of geography!" Now this baby was also a genius and his name was Alby!
5: There first sop was the Middle East. The Stork described to Alby the first theme of geography: location. He told him about how its name is the Middle East, he told him about the many deserts located in this area, and of cold night and hot days in this region.
7: Next the stork took Alby to Asia to teach him about Place. The stork said to him "Now you see, Asia's main religion is Hinduism, the different languages depend on the country and..." "Mr. Stork? What about those mountains, don't they have to do with Place?" asked Alby. "Those mountains you see are the Himalayas! And you are right Alby, they do have to do with place! Landforms are a major part of place actually!" said the Stork.
9: Next there travels sent them to America to learn about movement and what better place to learn about movement then the U.S.A.! "Now you see ALby, the U.S.A. once only started out as 13 colonies, now look at it! This is a great place to learn about movement! Most major cities started as a simple idea and expanded into something huge! Look at New York City for example, it was a small, simple settlement that grew and grew and grew thanks to a new idea! That is movement Alby!"
11: Now it was to there fourth stop on the trip, Africa. "Now Alby, do you know what this place is?" "Afwica!" Alby said. "Correct! We're here to learn about human/enviromental interactions, our fourth theme of geography! Now Africa is very in touch with the enviroment, many huts are made of items provided by the enviroment! Like straw, mud, sticks, all of that is from the enviroment! Now because of these items there is not much pollution in this continent. Many tribes in Africa depend on nature for their needs!" explains the Stork.
13: "Now to our last lesson of the night and where i drop you off at your new home Alby! Europe!" the Stork said. "What's the last theme Mr. Stork?" Alby asked. "Region! Now region has to do with area, location, and boundaries. There are a few more things with Region but we won't discuss those here! Now Europe cleary has a large area. It is located in between the continents of Asia and Africa, and the Atlantic Ocean and Artic Ocean. The boundaries of Europe are the many borders of the countries that make up Europe!" the Stork told Alby. "Now I know!" Alby exclaimed.
15: "Now Alby, this is where I leave you. We are at your new home in Ulm, Germany," said the stork. "Thank you for everything Mr. Stork!" "Your welcome Alby! Goodbye!" yelled the Stork as he flew away. "Awww, look at our precious baby!" said Alby's dad as he found him at the front door. "How about Albert, Albert Einstein!" exclaimed his mother. "Perfect!" as his dad approved. The End
