1. New node

1.1. New node

2. Region

2.1. Group of places with common traits.

3. Continent

3.1. Largue landmass on Earth's surface.

4. Environment

5. Landscape

5.1. Part of the Eath's surface that can be viewed at one time from one place.

5.2. Consists of the geographic features that mark, or are characteristic of a particular area.

5.3. When the wind blows over the sea, it creates waves, sise and energy of the wave depends on: FETCH- how far the wave has travelled, STRENGHT- of the wind, and HOW LONG- the wind has been blowing for.

5.3.1. WEATHERING Freeze- thaw weathering Occurs when rocks are porous or permeable. Biological weathering Chemical weathering Rainwater and seawater can be a weak acid. Of a coastline os madre up of rocks such as limestone or chalk over the time it can be dissolved bu the acids of the water.

5.3.2. MASS MOVEMENT The downhill movement of sediment that moves because of gravity, there are 4 different types of mass movement: ROCKFALL, MUDFLOW, LANDSLIDE, ROTATIONAL SLIP.

5.3.3. EROSION Wearing away of rock along the coastline. DESTRUCTIVE WAVES


5.4.1. Beach material can be moved in 4 different ways: SOLUTION: minerals in rocks are dissolved in sea water and carried in solution, the load isn't visible. SUSPENSION: smalle particles such as silts a suspended in the flow of water. SALTATION: small pieces of shingle or large sand grains are bounced along the sea bed.


5.5.1. When the sea losses energy, it drops the material it has been carrying. Factors leading to deposition: 1.WAVES STARTING TO SLOW DOWN AND LOSE ENERGY. 2.SHALLOW WATER. 3. SHELTERED AREAS (bays). 4. LITTLE OR NO WIND.

5.5.2. It can happen on coastlines that have constructive waves.

6. Territory

7. Border

7.1. Line that separates geographic areas.

7.2. Political boundaries.

7.3. Separates countries, states, provinces, counties, cities, and towns.


8.1. Geography & identity

8.1.1. Environmental factors and significant memories in places contribute to a sense of who we are.

8.1.2. Emotional and cognitive factors work together to lay down deep learning paths in the brain.

8.1.3. With our interaction with people and places we develop attitudes and values that affect the way we view the world.
