A place is an area that can be defined by everything in it. There are two ways a place can be described by Human Characteristics and Physical Characteristics. Human Characteristics is what's been put in place by humans and Physical Characteristics are natural features. My home's Human Characteristics are that we have solar panels, antenna, shed, pool, and throwing range. My home's Physical Characteristics are our woods, pond, deer, rabbits, and coyotes.


Human-Environmental Interaction

Human-Environmental Interaction (AKA HEI) is how people adapt, modify, and depend on the environment. Adapt is making something suitable for a new use or purpose. I adapt to the environment by wearing warm clothing in the harsh winters. Modify is when you make partial or minor changes to something. I modify the environment by digging a hole and planting a tree. Depend is relying on something for support or maintence. I depend on water in the environment.


Movement is the way that people, products, ideas and information move from one place to another. Transportation is one branch of movement. My mom drives me to dance and religion and I take the bus two and from school which is a form of transportation. Goods is a different branch of movement. I have a bed that was made in Japan and painted in China which is an example of goods moving. Communication is the last branch of movement. I communicate by texting, emailing, calling, and snapchatting.


A region is an area that is defined by a certain similar and unifying characteristic. A unifying physical characteristic that describes the Midwest is that it has flat land and one unifying human feature of the Midwest is that there are lots of farms because of the flat land.
