OKAY! Let's start here...
Many of you may not be familiar with PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY. It's the biggest EARTH SCIENCE around. It uses many ideas from other sciences that you have seen before. We can only begin to explain how ideas from many different fields combine into the knowledge of physical geography. You will find information from chemistry, biology, physics, climatology, astronomy and many other sciences.
One big thing to remember... This kind of geography is not about countries and gross domestic products. Physical geography is all about the Earth and the things that happen on Earth. Humans are only one part of the overall equation.
If you're saying, "Where do I start with so much information about the Earth?" Don't worry. There's one common thing that is found throughout the universe... ENERGY. We suggest starting your explorations there. We'll introduce many concepts about the flow of energy on Earth and then lead you into other ideas on the site.
That's it for the introduction. Now its up to you to click and have fun! GEOGRAPHY4KIDS is one of many free science sites developed by our team. You may have also used Biology4Kids, Chem4Kids, Cosmos4Kids, or Physics4Kids. We even have a math site called NumberNut.com.
Now it's time for you to dive into our physical geography pages and start learning. Remember, the site offers an introduction to the earth sciences.
