FC: The 5 Themes of Geography
2: Location | Location is what you use to indicate where something is. | There are two types of location, relative and absolute.
3: Absolute location is using longitude and latitude to show location of something. For example, Owensboro's absolute location is 37 43' N / 87 10' W. | Relative location is using landmarks and other structures to tell the location of one place. For example, the cat is next to the dog.
4: Human/ Environmental Interaction | Human & Environmental Interaction deals with how humans change the landscape, and how the landscape changes humans. This can be good, and bad.
5: The environment can change humans very drastically too. Humans, if they live in a habitat for a long period of time, will evolve to better survive that environment. This is called adaptation, and it has happened all around the world.
6: Region | Region is the general area of where a place is. For example, Kentucky is in the region of the South, and the U.S is in the region of North America.
7: Regions can be defined by boundaries as well. Kentucky and the U.S are regions in themselves. Utah could be considered to be in the Mountain Region, as well as California could be considered to be in the Pacific Region.
8: Place | Place is a people's culture, beliefs, lifestyles, and values. It can be anything people do to survive, or anything they do for fun. Place is how a location is defined.
9: This can also be the physical elements of a place. It can be the climate, the amount of seasons a place has per year, how arable the land is, and how much soil and rock erosion goes on per year.
10: Movement | Movement is the spread of an innovation or ideology throughout history. It describes the epicenter of an idea, or the origin of a innovation.
11: It also describes how the idea spreads, it could be expansion diffusion, which means an idea lingers in its origin before spreading, or contagious diffusion, which means all nearby areas are affected by the idea.
