(3) Geography: The student understands how physical processes shape patterns in the physical environment. The student is expected to:

(A) explain weather conditions and climate in relation to annual changes in Earth-Sun relationships;

(B) describe the physical processes that affect the environments of regions, including weather, tectonic forces, erosion, and soil-building processes; and

(C) examine the physical processes that affect the lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere.

    • Geography, Geographers, and Geography Tools
    • Geographers in the Field
  • Going around the world in the classroom:
  • Which “tools” might be used in the study of the earth, in order to incorporate the 5 themes of Geography?

Classroom Discussion
  • How many types of climate zone categories do you think there are distributed across the earth surface?

What is weather?
  • I use this website:
  • Wunderground.com
  • What makes weather

different from climate?

  • Watch National Geographic - Killer Hurricanes
        • Write a minimum of a half page to one page reflection: connecting the weather activity and the lifestyle of hurricanes. Focusing on:
            • What will happen if the glaciers melt and a hurricane(s) makes landfall in the United States?
  • NOAA Coastal information
        • What does the acronym NOAA represent?
  • For fun watch Lightning Strikes with family members.

  • The Cycle of Natural Disasters

(4) Geography. The student understands the patterns and characteristics of major landforms, climates, and ecosystems of Earth and the interrelated processes that produce them. The student is expected to:

(A) explain how elevation, latitude, wind systems, ocean currents, position on a continent, and mountain barriers influence temperature, precipitation, and distribution of climate regions;

(B) describe different landforms and the physical processes that cause their development and

(C) explain the influence of climate on the distribution of biomes in different regions

(8) Geography. The student understands how people, places, and environments are connected and interdependent. The student is expected to:

A) compare ways that humans depend on, adapt to, and modify the physical environment, including the influences of culture and technology

B) describe the interaction between humans and the physical environment and analyze the consequences of extreme weather and other natural disasters such as El Niño, floods, tsunamis, and volcanoes; and

(C) evaluate the economic and political relationships between settlements and the environment, including sustainable development and renewable/non-renewable resources.

“According to O’Neill(2011) a new study, [correlates] less than 10% of the world’s land is more than 48 hours of travel from the nearest city. This doesn’t include air travel, it is ground-travel only (i.e. on foot, train, car, boat, bike, horse, donkey). So no matter where you are in the world, there’s a good chance you can get to somewhere substantially populated within two days”

(12)(11) Geography. The student understands the impact of geographic factors on major events. The student is expected to:

(A) analyze the effects impact of physical and human geographic factors on major events including the building of the settlement of the Great Plains, the Klondike Gold Rush, the Panama Canal, the Dust Bowl, and the levee failure in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina; and

(B) identify and explain reasons for changes in political boundaries such as those resulting from statehood and international conflicts.
