    Regions of the United States: A Geographic Perspective

    Overview:

    A geographic perspective is a way of looking at and understanding the world. When you view the world through the lens of geography, you are asking who, what, where, and when people, places, and things are distributed across the surface of the earth, and why and how they got there. In other words, it means that you are analyzing something within its spatial, historical, cultural, political, and physical contexts. You can study anything that has some spatial component to it from this perspective. All things—whether they are rivers, cities, populations of people, or events—exist in a particular place and in a particular time for a set of specific reasons. For example, the Great Plains resulted from the retreat of a massive glacier nearly 14,000 years ago; and the United States is in part the consequence of a small group of people from England who immigrated to North America because of religious persecution and their interactions with the indigenous people who already lived here. Although these two events are separated in time by thousands of years, they are connected in that the descendents of those original colonists, as well as later immigrants, traversed the Great Plains; displaced indigenous populations; established cities, farms, and ranches; and disseminated their culture. Applying a geographic perspective will help students understand what things are, where they are located, why they are located where they are, how they came to be, and why they change.

    In this lesson, students will explore United States regions using a geographic perspective. They will select a specific regional feature and apply a geographic perspective to learn about it within in a variety of contexts. Finally, students will predict how these features may change over time, what factors may precipitate this change, and the possible affects these changes may cause.

    This should answer #2:

    Climate

    The city is situated in a Mediterranean climate or subtropical zone, experiencing mild, reasonably wet winters and warm to hot, mildly humid summers. Generally the weather is dry in all seasons, but can be relatively cold in the winter. Breezes from the Pacific Ocean tend to keep the beach communities of the Los Angeles area cooler in summer and warmer in winter than those further inland, and summer temperatures can sometimes vary by as much as 25 °F warmer in the inland communities compared to that of the coastal communities. The coastal communities of Los Angeles are commonly affected by a phenomenon known as a 'marine layer', a dense cloud cover caused by the proximity of the ocean, that helps keep the temperatures cooler throughout the year. Temperatures in the summer can get well over 90 °F (32 °C), but average summer daytime highs are 85 °F (29 °C), with overnight lows of 66 °F (18 °C). Winter daytime high temperatures will get up to around 65 °F (21 °C), on average, with overnight lows of 45 °F (8 °C) and during this season rain is common. The median temperature in January is 58.3 °F (14.6 °C) and 74.3 °F (23.5 °C) in July. The highest temperature recorded within city borders was 119.0 °F (48.33 °C) in Woodland Hills on July 22, 2006[1]; the lowest temperature recorded was 18.0 °F (−7.8 °C) in 1989, in Canoga Park. The highest temperature ever recorded for Downtown Los Angeles was 112.0 °F (44.4 °C) on June 26, 1990, and the lowest temperature ever recorded was 28.0 °F (−2.2 °C) on January 4, 1949. Rain occurs mainly in the winter and spring months (February being the wettest month) with great variations in storm severity year by year. Los Angeles averages 15 inches (381 mm) of precipitation per year. It rarely snows in the city basin, but the mountains slopes within city limits typically receive snow every year. With weather permitting, it is possible to snow ski and surf on the same day in the Los Angeles area.
