The word geography means the study of the earth. Geography describes the physical features of an area. It includes the place of living and non-living things and how they influence one another and the lives of humans. Throughout the year we will be studying different civilizations and how they were affected by the geography, or land and water, around them. It is important that you understand what these words mean because we will be using them during the year. Using GoogleEarth, your textbook and other resources, fill in the chart below to make a picture glossary. In the definition box, write the meaning of the word. In the picture box, draw an image that will help you picture the term. Be sure to draw your pictures are in color!
