Canadian Geographic Article:

Tyler-

Population tells you or how much people live in one area. I'm going to talk connect population to climate, natural resources, and physical regions. I'm first going to talk to you about climate and population. Wouldn't more people want to live in a warmer places than colder places. For example near southern Canada its hotter than northern Canada which is colder. Next I'm going to talk to you about natural resources connecting to population. They connect, if there isn't enough food there wouldn't be lots of people living there because there isn't lots of food. Next I'm going to talk to you about physical regions. some people may not like the mountains and some people may like to hike. Population is a good subject to know.


Madison R.-

Natural resources are found naturally, if the climate or soil isn't right people won't want to live there and natural resources won't grow. Natural resources to population lots of farmers live in the prairies because there is the right soil for growing things. For example in Alberta there is wheat farming so lots of farmers live there and it's in southern Canada so more people live there. Natural resources to climate because if the climate isn't right then some kinds of natural resources won't grow there. For example up in the Arctic it's cold so there you much farming going on up there. Natural resources to physical regions if the soil isn't right or there is no soil at all chances are not many natural resources will be growing there. For example up in the north you won't have very many plants and natural resources growing there. That's how natural resources connect to the other geographical themes.

Shamlo-

Climate determines a type of weather that is averaged over long variations of time, and climate connects to three other geographical themes.Climate connects to population because people prefer an average of hot and cold climates so they live in the mid-southern areas of Canada.Climate also connects to natural resources because it will determine if a place has many trees,oil,minerals or even crops and plants.Climate connects to physical regions because it will make a place a desert with a climate of warm temperatures or make a place a rain forest with climates of colder temperatures.Climate makes an amazing difference in all of the geographical themes.

Camille-

Physical Regions is about the types of regions that are found in Canada.There are three connections that connects to physical regions population natural resources and climate. Population connects to physical regions because oh how many people live in each region like the Interior plains. Natural resources connects with physical region because of fruits and other things that grow or in the region. Climate connects to physical regions because of how it's very cold in the north and gets very hot in other regions. These three connections of population natural resources and climate connect to physical regions.

Madison R-

Natural resources are resources found naturally. First I am going to talk to you about how natural resources connect to climate depending on climate different amounts and types of natural resources will grow and change. For example down in southern Alberta it's hot so it's the perfect place to grow wheat so it's doesn't rain there much so you won't have a forest growing there like in British Columbia. Next I am going to talk to you about how natural resources connect to population if there isn't enough natural resources for people to survive not many people will live there. For example say your a indian tribe and you live in a forest and there is good for hunting food you will probably will want to stay there. Next I am going to talk to you about how natural resources connect to physical regions like if the soil isn't the type of soil for growibng what you want to grow you won't have what you want to grow there. For example if you live in the artic and you want to start growing peach trees you will not be able to grow peach trees there because of the type of ground. Natural resources is a fun geographical theme to learn and research about.

Camille-

Physical Region and Natural Resources seems to connect together the most, because of the resouces you can find in each region. Including the food the poultry and other resouces that we use. Also because there are some forest in some regions, which the wood can be used to make tables,chairs, paper and other wooden things. Also Population mostly connects to Natural resources because of the people in each region needing resources, including fish, wood, clothing and other things.Climate is mostly connected to Physical Regions because of the parts of the regions being hot or cold. Also to how some regions never gets wind or never rains, maybe even no sun. Natural resouces maybe is the one that connects the most to all the other geographical themes.
