Environmental geography

Do you believe that a person can be aware of everything? It goes without saying that nowadays there are a lot of different branches of science and disciplines that need to be explored. Nevertheless, the ordinary man can know a little part of the each science? Do you know how?

Human Geography

Human geography is a direction of the foreign economic geography of the late XIX century in France (J.Zh.Elise Reclus, P.Vidal de la Blas, J. Brun, A.Demangeon). Unlike anthropogeographers, representatives of this direction sought to explain the features of the geography of the population not so much in natural factors, as in a combination of economic, historical and psychological characteristics, including social, urban, cultural, regional, political situation. The high skill of describing the nature and life of people, the way of life and customs of the inhabitants, and the colorful and succulent language contributed to the wide dissemination of human geography.

Physical Geography

Physical geography is a basic science about the Earth, its nature, the geographic envelope of the Earth, natural processes, laws, and orders. Physical geography is one of the oldest sciences. Today, physical geography is a huge array of knowledge, discoveries, and disciplines that describe, study, analyze, establish the laws of the existence of the planet Earth and all natural processes and phenomena. The section is divided into a school course of physical geography and an academic unit, which distinguishes as purely physical and geographical sciences, and related branches of knowledge. It’s also divided on geomorphology, oceanography, hydrology, glaciology, biogeography, climatology, meteorology and palaeogeography.

To begin with, geography is considered to be one of the most important fields of study. At present, there is a significant number of the researchers engaged in this area of study. What is more important, the majority of scientists working in the field of geography and environmental studies tends to study different global issues that might do harm to the modern society.

Since geography is studied in the colleges and universities around the world, the educators may also use the flashcards in the learning process. Using this practical approach, teachers may either explain a new topic to their students or review the materials that are already known for them. Depending on the topic of discussion, they can create the flashcards on different geographical subjects.

For instance, the list of possible themes for creating the information cards may include the human geography, physical geography, geography of polar regions, world geography, urban development, environmental issues, agriculture, the structure of Planet Oceans, and the others. Geography and World Cultures is one of the most attractive topics that can be used by the educators for creating the flashcards in the attempt to make their classes more engaging and efficient.

Since flashcards are considered to be the effective tools for memorizing, they can be used by high school students and college undergraduates as well. The important thing is that there is no need to waste a lot of money on the materials to create these information cards. In addition, this useful activity does not require any significant efforts, and it will not take long. Apart from that, by creating the flashcards, students get a number of benefits related to their learning process. For instance, these cards may be useful when the learners are required to memorize some geographical terms that seem to be complicated.

Needless to say, that the use of flashcards while preparing for an in-class test on geographical issues may lead to the better results as well as to the greater chances of writing an A+ paper. In the most cases, students tend to use these tools while preparing for the exams. The reason for such a tendency is the fact that all the exams require the knowledge of a great scope of materials learned during the course.
