KY.CC. Core Content for Assessment v.4.1.
SS-06-4. 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.

KY.PS. Program of Studies 2006
SS-6-G. Big Idea: 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. (Academic Expectations 2.19)
SS-6-G-S-3. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will investigate interactions among human activities and the physical environment in the present day:
SS-6-G-S-3.a) Explain cause and effect relationships between the natural resources of a place or region and its political, social, and economic development
SS-6-G-S-3.b) Explain how people modify the physical environment (e.g., dams, roads, bridges) to meet their needs in different regions
SS-6-G-U-4. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that people depend on, adapt to, or modify the environment to meet basic needs. Human actions modify the physical environment and in turn, the physical environment limits or promotes human activities in the present day.
