or a street address
Relative location –
a description of a location,
using what’s around it;
not an exact location
Define:
degrees,
latitude, &
longitude
Degrees: how to measure
long. & lat. (the label)
Longitude: vertical map
lines that measure distance
east & west of Prime Meridian
Latitude: flat map lines that
measure distance north &
south of Equator
What is the
difference between
weather &
climate?

Weather: what it’s like
outside NOW – can
change quickly
Climate: what it’s

Name the
5 Themes of
Geography
&
give an example or

lat, or what something is near)
Place: what characteristics does the place have?
Think of physical features, climate, & population
Human-Environment Interaction: how we
depend on, adapt to, & change the land around us
Movement: how we’re linked to other places?
How we get to places & communicate with others.
Regions: what characteristics can you group
states or cities by? Such as: location, farm land,
