When geographers look at a 'Place', they want to know what it is like there. Then, when geographers want to know where a place is, they use 'Location' to find it. 'Human Environment Interactions' shows us how places affect people, and how the people living there can affect a place. Geographers also study 'Movement'—the way people, ideas, and goods or things move from place to place. And to study a place more closely, geographers sometimes divide the earth into regions. Studying 'Regions' shows us how places are alike, and how they are different from each other. Join five enthusiastic students in their high-tech 'Social Studies Lab' to learn about these five themes of geography. Visit locations around the world to understand how geographers study the the earth and the people who live here.
Explore the terms that researchers use and will make studying geography easier to understand.
