How Does The Environment Impact Humans?


Settlement patterns
Settlement Patterns

The climate impacts where people can live. People have a difficult time living where:

  • The climate is too hot

  • The climate is too cold

  • There is no water


Settlement patterns1
Settlement Patterns

  • Examine the following maps and see if you can explain the population patterns. Are people living next to fresh water? Are people avoiding deserts or cold areas?

Agricultural activity
Agricultural Activity hunting

  • The environment has a huge impact on what types of food humans can grow, how they grow them, and where they can grow them.


Agricultural activity1
Agricultural Activity hunting

Agricultural activity can be affected by:

  • Topography - Is the land flat or mountainous?

  • Climate - Certain types of crops can only grow in certain temperatures. If there is not enough rainfall humans must irrigate crops.


Agricultural activity2
Agricultural Activity hunting

  • Only a small percentage of the land on earth is arable. Arable land is land that can be used for farming. Examine the following maps and look at an atlas. See if you can explain the types of crops these countries grow and why some land is not used for farming.

Transportation patterns1
Transportation Patterns hunting

  • Mountains are barriers to trade because it is difficult to build roads over mountains.

  • People use rivers and the ocean for transportation routes because boats transport goods more efficiently.

  • Extreme weather, such as the cold, can make it difficult to transport goods.
