This Is Why We Think
Geography Is Important...
We think Geography is important
Types Of Geography
There are many different types of
geography, the main ones are Human
Geography and Physical Geography.
They are equally important and here are
some reasons why:
Physical Geography is natural and
happens naturally without humans doing
anything to cause it like the formation of
mountains and volcanoes erupting.
When these things happen they can have
Human Geography is about us and how we
cope with living and where we live, why we
live there and what it is like.
Our world is important
Our world is facing problems which are
very dangerous. Here are some of the
threats faced by our planet.
WE are polluting the environment and we
need to change treat are world with care
not despair. We are destroying the
environment by creating power plants
and making lots of cars which create
more carbon dioxide.
Global Warming part 1
What is it?
Global warming means that the temperature in
our world is rising.
Why is this bad?
This is bad because the atmosphere’s made up
of layers of gases called greenhouse gases. If
there is too much of the greenhouse gases
being made the heat on our planet will stay
inside the atmosphere harming or maybe killing
life on planet earth!
Global warming part 2
Where do the greenhouse gases come
Some are natural and some are
produced by activities which release
carbon dioxide – things like using coal
and petrol and cutting down rainforests!
Global Warming part 3
What could happen?
Sea levels would rise, destroying land. Places
like Seaford could flood.
There would be more droughts on land making
it hard to grow crops.
What can we do?
We can reduce the carbon dioxide that is
damaging the ‘O’ zone levels by:
Recycling, having a compost heap, turn
electrical equipment off when not being used
and walking more than driving.
Our rainforests are being
Why are they being destroyed?
Our rainforests are being destroyed to
make room for cattle and to be turned
into furniture and charcoal.
Sometimes it is cut down to create room
to grow food like sugarcane, bananas,
tea and coffee.
Oil companies look for new oil deposits
and build pipelines, cutting down forests!
Why do we need rainforests?
Rainforests are important because they provide a
habitat for plants and animals! They regulate the
temperature of our planet!
They provide homes for many people!
Rainforests are like PHARMACIES. Even though we only
use 1% of all the types of amazing plants – they provide
25% of all our medicines – we would not have many of
our common medicines if the rainforests disappeared!
Many of our foods come from rainforests!
DID YOU KNOW that over half of the planets rainwater is
stored in the rainforest!
How can we help save the
Do not buy products made from endangered
Buy nuts, cookies and cereals made from
rainforest products –that way farmers have a
reason to keep trees and plants and not cut
Ask where beef burgers were made to make
sure no rainforest was destroyed when
making room for the cattle
Use less paper by using both sides!
