Geography Form1 Notes

Geography is the scientific study of the earth as the home of human kind.  The term Geography is derived from the Greek words: Geo and Graphien. Geo  means Earth and graphien means to write, draw or describe. These two words are combined to form Geographein, which means to describe, write about or draw the earth. The description includes the Earth's physical features, resources, climate, animals and people as well as their distribution and the relationships between them.
