The World of Geography

What is Geography?

*It is the study of our earth; our
  home.
                   OR
*Anything that can be mapped!




OwlTeacher.com
What is Geography? Part 2


*Geography mixes up the physical
 and human aspects of our world
     into one field of study.

        *Geography shows the
    relationship between people and
            the environment.

OwlTeacher.com
What is a geographer?

• Someone who
   analyzes the
   Earth from many
   points of view.




OwlTeacher.com
The Five Themes of Geography
• When geographers work, they are
      guided by two basic questions:

    1) Where are things located?

    2) Why are they there?

        To find these answers, geographers use
           five themes to organize information


OwlTeacher.com
Things that geographers study:
• oceans
• plant life
• landforms
• people
• how the Earth and its people affect each
  other



OwlTeacher.com
The Five Themes:
1) Location – Geographers begin to study a place
     by finding where it is, or its location.

2) Place – Geographers study the physical and
     human features of a location.

3) Human-Environment Interaction –
     Geographers study how people affect or shape
     physical characteristics of their natural
     surroundings and how does their surroundings
     (environment) affect them?
OwlTeacher.com
4) Movement – Helps explain how people,
      goods, and ideas get from one place to
      another.

5) Regions – Geographers compare the
      climate, land, population, or history of
      one place to another.
