World Studies Eastern Hemisphere
Where something is located.
For example, the absolute location of Bora Bora is located at 16.5004° S, 151.7415° W.
Location can also be described as telling someone where you are.
For example, if you are meeting up with a friend and you say I'm near Dairy Queen you would meet up at that relative location.
Moment is when something or someone moves from point A to point B.
For example if a flock of geese was migrating or the season there would be movement because they are moving from one place to another.
Another example is if you where driving to Connecticut to California there is movement.
Things could move too. If a pair of shoes where made in India and you brought them to Connecticut they moved from one place to another.
Ideas could also move from generation to generation.
Human effect the environment and the environment effects us.
The environment could effect us by flooding places like Austin, Texas.
People effect the environment too. For example, if there was a large body of water humans would have to build a bridge over it so you could drive across it.
The environment can also affect how people live, dress, eat, and talk.
Regions are areas that share one or more common features together.
There are also different types of regions.
Such as climate, political, formal regions, etc.
Places are individualized from one another.
For example, Hawaii has volcanoes, while here in Connecticut we have mostly hills and mountains. Or even there natural characteristics.
Based on the climate and things that they have there.
