*Early human beings depended entirely on nature for food, clothing, and shelter. But as society progressed, humans learned the art of building homes, growing food, and developing means of transport.
*Settlements are where people live, and settlements could be temporary, as in for hunter-gatherers, or permanent, as in for farmers or office and factory workers.
*Different modes of transport over land, water, and air help people travel all over the world easily and quickly.
