Locate the major landforms, rivers and climate regions of the Eastern Hemisphere.
Study the relationships between people, places, and environments by using information that is in a geographic (spatial) context. Engage in mapping and analyzing the information to explain the patterns and relationships they reveal both between and among people, their cultures, and the natural environment. Identify and access information, evaluate it using criteria based on concepts and themes, and use geography in problem solving and decision making. Explain and use key conceptual devices (places and regions, spatial patterns and processes) that geographers use to organize information and inform their study of the world.
Use geographic inquiry and analysis to answer important questions about relationships between people, cultures, their environment, and relations within the larger world context.
