Movement

Geography Themes: 

Movement

  • People interact with other people, places, and things almost every day of their lives. They travel from one place to another; they communicate with each other; and they rely upon products, information, and ideas that come from beyond their immediate environment.
  • You should be able to recognize where resources are located, who needs them, and how they are transported across the earth. The theme of movement helps make us aware of how we are connected with, and dependent upon, other regions, cultures, and people in the world.
  • There are some fun things you can do to help you learn what movement is all about...
    • The products we use. Where do the products we use originate? Collect labels from foods, clothing, toys, and other products they use. Where do those products come from? What percentage of those products are made in your state? your country? other continents? Are we dependent on products from all around the world? How do you think products made from outside your community might get there.
    • Roots. Where did your family come from? Ask your parents to find out about your families' roots. If you are from the U.S, and your parents can help you trace back, you can even find out when and why your ancestors came to the United States and how they got here.
