Today we went over class expectations and course outline. Then we began to look at the five themes of geography. We discussed LOCATION (absolute and relative), PLACE (physical and human characteristics), and HUMAN-ENVIRONMENT INTERACTION (how humans depend on, adapt to, and modify the environment).
Next class period we will look at MOVEMENT and REGIONS.
