Places form and change as a result of human and physical characteristics. Humans will interact with their environment in order to meet their needs. Places are often connected with one another through movement of goods, people and ideas. Many factors can contribute to a region s identity. Regions are often distinguished by their characteristics. Unit Essential Question(s) How do we identify the location of places? What is the impact of human and physical characteristics in the formation and change of places? In what ways do humans interact with the environment to meet needs? How do the movement of goods, people and ideas connect places? What factors contribute to a region s identity? What characteristics are used to differentiate between regions?
