Earth's Regions
By Trista L. Pollard
  

1     Our rotating sphere changes every day. People remove trees and soil to add new buildings and structures. Earth's physical features change when volcanoes erupt and earthquakes rumble. Geographers need to learn about these changes. They also need to learn about changes in Earth's past.
 
2     Earth is extremely large. Studying its features can be overwhelming. So to make it easier, geographers divide the Earth into regions. Regions are areas that share common features. These features can be landforms, climate, economy, vegetation, or people. Geographers create these regions based on the information they want to study.
 
3     If geographers want to learn about your state, they would divide it into regions. They might look at your state's industry and agriculture. Industry is the manufacturing or making of goods. It is also the supplying of services. Services are those duties that are done for other people. The northern part of your state may have technology companies. These companies may sell computers or provide Internet services. This area could be a separate region from the other areas in your state. Geographers would study why the companies moved to this area. They would study the natural resources that are used in this region. They would also study the people who live and work in this region.
