THE
PHILIPPINE ENVIRONMENT

Overview

Everything that we see around us makes up our environment. The landforms and bodies of water that make up the landscape, the mountains and valleys, rivers and seas; the climate, the rains brought by the monsoons, the warm, humid weather that we frequently experience; the natural resources that we make use of; every plant and animal that live around us. Truly, the environment is made up of a lot of things.

All these things that we find in our surroundings and all the natural phenomena that we observe are not due to some random luck or accident. What makes up our environment is very much related to where our country is on the globe. Or, to say it in a different way, the characteristics of our environment are determined by the location of the Philippines on the planet.

Latitude and Longitude

Before we learn about the characteristics of our environment, let us first talk about the location of the Philippines. Where is the Philippines? The Philippines is on Earth, of course, but where exactly is it located? To answer this question, you have to learn a new skill: locating places using latitude and longitude.

    As a teacher and as a mother, I was really moved by the film especially on its latter part when the parents came to realize their inadequacies in understanding and finding the cause of their child’s “failure”. I could feel the agony of Sean when he was left in a boarding school far away from the comfort of his own home and from the love and care his family especially of his mother.
