Storyboard Text

  • Hi! My name is Jim and I am going to be showing you the 5 themes of geography.  Let's go! 
  • The first theme of geography I am going to tell you is place. Place is a description of the physical and human characteristics of the location being studied. 
  • For example, I am currently in a park with hills and many animals such as squirrels and butterflies. These stupid, pesky flies are getting on my last nerve. Go away! 
  • The second theme is Location. Location is kind of like the first step in understanding an aspect of the earth and involves providing a reference to describe where a particular place is on the earth. For example, I am in Liberty High School´s Theater. This is an absolute location.
  • ¨Hey, get off of my stage!¨
  •  Oops. Well, got to go! 
  • This could be an absolute location, where a location is based on a definitive reference that rarely changes, such as latitude or longitude, or an address. Or it could be a relative location, where a place is described relative to its environment or its connection to other places. 
  • The third theme is Human-Environment Interaction. It is the study of how humans affect the environment and how the environment affects humans. Humans can have a positive impact on the environment or a negative one. 
  • For example, the factory behind me is producing air pollution, which is making the air contaminated and makes it hard to breathe. This is a negative impact of humans affecting the environment. *cough* *cough* I can't breathe. I need to get out of here!  Curse you humans and your stupid air pollution!
  • The fourth theme is movement. This is when humans, goods, and ideas move from place to place on the Earth. For example, I am a human moving from place to place on a boat. 
  • I am starting to regret taking a boat instead of the bus. I don't feel so good. I think I'm going to be sick. I will be right back.  Move out of the way!
  • Thanks for coming with me and learning about the five themes with me. I'll see you soon! Bye!
  • The final theme of geography is region. A region is an area that has some physical or human characteristics. For example, you have many regions in a certain city, like Central New York.
