Reasons for Regions
By Trista L. Pollard
  

1     Our planet is a very big place. Geographers and other scientists are still learning new information about the Earth. To make it easier to study the Earth, they have divided it into regions.
 
2     Regions are areas that have similar features. These areas may be landform regions. Landform regions share the same types of landforms. Climate regions have the same type of climate. Human regions are formed when people of the same culture settle and live in the same area. Let's start with landform regions.
 
3     In the United States (U.S.), there are many landform regions. In fact, geographers have found eight large regions. However, we will only talk about a few. If you live along the coast near the Atlantic Ocean, then you are in the Atlantic Plain. This area is found in the eastern part of the U.S. It is also located in the southeastern part of the U.S. The Atlantic Plain is flat land. People visit the many beaches in this region.
