World Geography GHSGT Review Jones County High School, GA Luella High School, GA Geography Geography is the study of the earths surface, land, bodies of water, climate, peoples, industries, &

natural resources. Physical Geography Physical Geography is the study of how physical characteristics define a region or place. land, climate, bodies of water, animal life A place is an area of land that shares common features or is defined by common characteristics.

Gulf of Mexico Georgia - Gulf coast - Kentucky Physical features (a.k.a. topography) are the natural land formations that make up the surface area. oceans

- mountains lakes - rivers landform - plains, mountains, valleys The Himalayas are the tallest mountains on earth

A body of water is a part of the earths surface covered with water. river - lakes - oceans climate average weather conditions over time

temperature, humidity, precipitation, sunshine, cloudiness natural vegetation- plants and trees that grow in an area animal life types of animals who naturally live in an area Human Geography human characteristics include language, religion, political systems, economic systems, population, and way of life.

THE FIVE THEMES OF GEOGRAPHY 5 #1 LOCATION Types of location: 1.Absolute location-the EXACT spot on the map; plotted on a point with lines of longitude and

latitude. 2.Relative location-the APPROXIMATE place; general region. EX: Where is Luella High? Absolute? #2 PLACE Place includes the physical features and cultural characteristics of a location. Climate, landforms, vegetation, animals, etc.

But also how the humans in those places live. What makes the American Southwest different from the American South? #3 REGION Basic question: How are places similar? A region is an area on the Earths surface with similar

characteristics. Tell me about the Middle East. Tell me about East Asia. #4 HUMAN-ENVIRONMENT INTERACTION KEY QUESTIONS: How does environment shape humans? How do humans shape the

environment? How humans interact and are shaped by their environment. #5-MOVEMENT How do things move? How do people move? Movement is NOT just limited to physical things. Movement can also mean ideological.

EX: Where did rap start? People & Population urbanization theDistribution growth & development of cities modernization process of a society leaving primitive methods behind to adopt more modern techniques population distribution - the arrangement

or spread of people living in a given area; also, how the population of an area is arranged according to variables such as age, race, or sex Understanding Maps Compass Rose A compass rose is a design on a map that shows directions. It shows north, south, east, west, northeast, northwest, southeast, and southwest. There is a Compass Rose located on every map.

Complete the Compass Rose below. On the compass rose above, only north is filled in. Fill in the rest of the directions on the compass rose, using the standard abbreviations: N=North, S=South, E=East, W=West, NE=Northeast, NW=Northwest, SE=Southeast, SW=Southwest. Two Types of Maps Physical Map - water,

lakes mountains, rivers, deserts Political Map Shows national or state boundaries Hemisphere (half of a circle)

Latitude & Longitude Longitude and Latitude are sets of imaginary lines that slice the Earth into sections. Using these imaginary lines, you can locate any point on the Earth and know its absolute location. Lines of latitude are called parallels, and lines of longitude are called meridians. Latitude & Longitude Lines of Latitude,

parallels, circle the globe horizontally. Latitude describes your position, north or south of the equator. The equator = 0 degrees latitude. Lines of Longitude, meridians, run vertically from the North Pole to the

South Pole. Meridians are used to measure distances in degrees east or west of the Prime Meridian. Legend Since a map is a reduced representation of the real world, map symbols are used to represent real objects. Without symbols, we wouldn't have maps. Both shapes and colors can be used for symbols on maps.

To ensure that a person can correctly read a map, a Map Legend is a key to all the symbols used on a map. It is like a dictionary so you can understand the meaning of what the map represents. Legend Scale Since an accurate map represents the land, each map has a "scale" which indicates the relationship between a certain

distance on the map and the distance on the ground. The map scale is usually located in the legend box of a map. A map scale can be printed in a variety of ways KEY COUNTRIES OF EUROPE EUROPEAN UNION (E.U.) 27 MEMBER NATIONS OF THE EU
