This is the fourth pillar of S.E.E.D.S.. Geography integrates all life, physical, and social sciences to study and explain the distribution of phenomena on Earth.  As such, it is an excellent connectivity tool for curriculum development.  The S.E.E.D.S. Geographic Systems Model is a fundamental arrangement of the core geographic concepts of Location, Scale, and Time to view the primary environmental spheres (e.g. Atmosphere, Biosphere, Hydrosphere, and Lithosphere) and the associated pathways interconnecting them.

 

            It is hard to imagine anyone NOT being connected to the reality of the world . Geography surrounds us every day of our lives.  We see, hear, taste, smell, and feel the world around us.  These senses then pique our curiosity, which is a common human reaction to the wonders of the world around us.  Thus begins the learning process.  S.E.E.D.S. uses the Geographic Systems Model to link student questions to the STEAM topics, which is the start of the S.E.E.D.S. curriculum development and education process.

 

            At S.E.E.D.S. we believe that it is hard (if not impossible) for anyone to master the sum total of human knowledge.  Parents and teachers are often hard pressed to adequately and consistently respond the endless “why” questions from curious children.  This creates a negative situation in which the endless "why's" require answers to things we might not know. This is where S.E.E.D.S. utilizes the Geographic Systems Model to take these questions and interest and connect it to something. Which then gives us the basis to extend our learning.

 

The Geographic Systems Model lets parents, teachers, and students forge connections between diverse observations and experiences to the vast reservoir of knowledge.  There may not always be answers.  Many times finding an “answer” leads to more questions.  The quest for knowledge is endless.  This is why S.E.E.D.S. strives to make people life-long learners.
