Basic Concepts

Elementary  /  Social Studies /  Basic Concepts

Geographic skills allow us to think geographically, which is important to understanding Earth’s physical and human patterns and processes. Geographic skills also allow us to understand the location of places and their characteristics so that we can learn about the interconnectedness of the world. In addition to a global perspective, our daily decisions are typically influenced by geography, such as where to bank or grocery.
