Early Childhood: Where Learning Begins Geography--January 1999

How Do People, Things, and Ideas Move From One Place To Another?

The study of geography includes learning how people, products, and information move from one place to another. People all over the world travel everyday to go to work, go to school, and see relatives. Products like sugar and coffee are shipped from country to country. Information is communicated via telephones, televisions, faxes, and computers. Understanding movement helps your children see that people all over the world need each other for many things.
