Human and Physical Geography Current Event Assignment SOL 2b and 12b

Task: Find TWO current events and relate them to geography.

One must be related to the physical aspect of geography (such as (weather, climate, landforms, earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanoes etc.)  and one must be related to the human aspect of geography (such as population, ethnic groups, culture, human conflicts, international organizations, human cooperation, disputed areas, push+pull factors, migration, Human-Environmental Interaction etc.)

Directions: For each aspect summarize the article (in 2-3 sentences) and describe/explain the connection to the physical or human aspect of geography (in 2-3 sentences). Include a Works Cited Page that gives the title of the article, the author or organization that published it, the date it was published, and the link to it.

EXAMPLE:
This article is about ethnic conflict in the country of South Sudan. The conflict is between two South Sudanese tribes: The Dinka and the Nuer. This article is an example of human geography because it focuses on ethnic conflicts. Ethnic conflicts often are a result of tensions between two different human groups. Additionally, the United Nations has peacekeepers inside South Sudan attempting to stop violence.

Works Cited:
Title: Sudan: Conflict has promoted Ethnic Tensions, says Official
Author: Sudan Tribune
