World Geography

Six Essential Elements


The Six Essential Elements

  • The World in Spatial Terms

  • Places and Regions

  • Physical Systems

  • Human Systems

  • Environment and Society

  • The Uses of Geography


1.The World in Spatial Terms

  • Using maps and images (pictures) to gather information from a spatial perspective (view)


1.The World in Spatial Terms

  • Example:

    • Imagine the route (path) you take home from school everyday.


1.The World in Spatial Terms

  • Example:

    • Following a road map to drive on vacation


1.The World in Spatial Terms

  • Example:

    • Imagine the floor plan of your home.


2.Places and Regions

  • The physical and human characteristics of a place that can be used to form regions or groups.


2.Places and Regions

  • Example:

    • Forming regions because of different climate zones.


2.Places and Regions

  • Example:

    • A country separated into regions based upon the languages that are spoken there.


2.Places and Regions

  • Example:

    • Grouping people by how much money they make.


3.Physical Systems

  • Physical processes (systems/cycles) that shape Earth’s surface.


3.Physical Systems

  • Example:

    • The water cycle can help to form the Earth by allowing plants to grow.


3.Physical Systems

  • Example:

    • Water can physically shape the Earth.


3.Physical Systems

  • Example:

    • Erosion can shape the earth


3.Physical Systems

  • Example:

    • Food Chain


4.Human Systems

  • The characteristics of humans and how we are all connected.


4.Human Systems

  • Example:

    • Our economies connect us. We share business and stores.


4.Human Systems

  • Example:

    • The clothing you buy comes from all around the world.


4.Human Systems

  • Example:

    • We are connected through technology.


5.Environment & Society

  • How humans and the environment affect each other.


5.Environment & Society

  • Examples:

    • Cutting down a forest to build new homes

    • Tornadoes destroying a town

    • Diseases closing schools


5.Environment & Society


5.Environment & Society


6.The Uses of Geography

  • Using geography to understand the past, present, and the future.


6.The Uses of Geography

  • Example:

    • We can use our knowledge about natural disasters to help keep us safe.


6.The Uses of Geography

  • Example:

    • We know how pollution destroys the Earth, so now we can do something about it.
