FC: Six Essential Themes of Geography By: Dallas Bell
1: It is important for us to understand our land and our relationship with it. We use the Six Essential Elements of Geography to help us learn more about where we live. These elements are: The World in Spatial Terms, Places and Regions, Physical Systems, Human Systems, Environment and Society, and The Uses of Geography.
2: The World in Spatial Terms We study the relationships between people, places, and our environment and how they are placed on a map.
4: Places and Regions How and why people live and are rooted in certain areas
6: Physical Systems How nature shapes the Earth through weather, erosion, earthquakes, and more.
8: Human Systems How humans settle Earth, use resources, and build transportation, communications, and economic systems.
10: Environment and Society The environment is changed by the things people do mainly as a consequence of the way society uses the earth's natural resources.
