What picture does come in your mind when you think about the subject Geography, a book with pictures and description about earth, solar system, land, water, etc.? The word Geography has been derived from a Greek word geographia which means description of earth. Well, Geography is the science that studies about the features, inhabitants and phenomena of the earth. Geography is important to study especially for the children because it is very logical that it opens their eyes regarding the world that they live in. It enables them to see the world and also let them figure out the facts about the mother earth.

The subject is of extreme interest and informs the children about the magnificent changes and activities that take place in the planet and even in the other planets. The subject does not only give us information about the lands of the planet but also life beyond the seas and oceans. The subjects describes so much about the universe that we can get to find out facts about the mountains, water world, lands, islands, volcanoes, the cyclones and also a lot of other interesting things regarding the universe. The subject, geography also improves our general knowledge and allows us to crack many academic competitions that are based on the very subject.

Children also get the chance to learn about the various types of flora and fauna. The subject gives knowledge such as the plant kingdom and the animal or bird in the cold lands and the heated regions are not the same. In the same way, the land forms in the cold regions are not the same as those of other regions in the world. In regions where, there are large deserts without many rivers and lakes because of less rain fall while equatorial regions are full of large rivers and lakes because of abundant rain. The climate and vegetation is different in different places and in same way lifestyles and activities of people who belong to different region are also different.

The languages also differ from region to region. Geography helps the students to understand the cultural diversity, environment and society globalization of the world. Many of the people take geography a subject that deals with knowing the places where they are located. Apart from everything geography is necessary for the children to study because it teaches them to interact with the atmosphere and it also relates to the multi cultural concerns and environmental education.
