Unit: Geography August 9 - Sept. 1st
Big Idea: Geography
Geography includes the study of the five fundamental themes of location, place, regions, movement and human/environmental interaction. Students need geographic knowledge to analyze issues and problems to better understand how humans have interacted with their environment over time, how geography has impacted settlement and population, and how geographic factors influence climate, culture, the economy, and world events. A geographic perspective also enables students to better understand the past and present and to prepare for the future.
