Unit 1 - Geography Introduction

How would you describe the location of your home, mall, or local football field? Would you mention the town it was located in, the street where it could be found, the state that it was in, use directional words such as North or South, or state the famous sites that surround it? Geographers developed the five themes of geography to aid in finding different areas. Unit 1 will discuss these themes, as well as the six essential elements and geographic terms.
