The Five themes of the Sahara
21° N, 11 ° E
MOVEMENT- with the Sahara's rough terrain of sandy mountains and hills, the most common form of movement is to walk. Occasionally, travelers will ride on an animal, commonly a camel.
HUMAN ENVIRONMENT INTERACTION- To receive the proper amount of resources such as water, many inventions are made that change the landscape around them, and make it more convenient. For example, some groups of people create a form of wells. With these being created the humans are altering the terrain to build. Also, the environment lacks water, forcing them to build these structures.
REGION- The Sahara is a vast amount of land, but it takes up the majority of Northern Africa
PLACE- The climate in the Sahara is hot, dry, and plain. In other words, there are not very many objects, and it is clear for many miles. The tough climate limits the amount people travel, and they become rather antisocial.
