Human-Envrionmental Interaction

Human-Envrionmental Interaction= how people adapt to the environment and depend on the environment


I depend on my environment for food. I like to eat vegetables, like corn and carrots. When we buy cans of pop that are held together by plastic, we cut the plastic apart, so an animal wouldn't die from it. I adapt to my environment by wearing warmer clothes when it gets cold out.

Movement

Movement= the way people, products, ideas and information move from one place to another


1. Transportation: I get from place to place in my mom's van or my dad's truck.

2. Goods: I eat pizza which comes from Italy.

3. Communication: We communicate by using phones and computers.
