1.2. Students make sense of the variety of materials they read.
KY.CC. Core Content for Assessment v.4.1.
SS-05-4. Geography: Geography includes the study of the five fundamental themes of location, place, regions, movement and human/environmental interaction. Students need geographic knowledge to analyze issues and problems to better understand how humans have interacted with their environment over time, how geography has impacted settlement and population, and how geographic factors influence climate, culture, the economy and world events. A geographic perspective also enables students to better understand the past and present and to prepare for the future.
SS-05-4.1. The Use of Geographic Tools
SS-05-4.1.1. Students will use geographic tools (e.g., maps, charts, graphs) to identify natural resources and other physical characteristics (e.g., major landforms, major bodies of water, weather, climate, roads, bridges) and analyze patterns of movement and settlement in the United States. DOK 3
SS-05-4.1.2. Students will use geographic tools to locate and describe major landforms, bodies of water, places and objects in the United States by their absolute location. DOK 2
SS-05-4.1.3. Students will describe how different factors (e.g. rivers, mountains) influence where human activities were/are located in the United States.
