An entity type is a useful abstraction to group together fields. Entities types are used to store and display data, which can be nodes (content), comments, taxonomy terms, user profiles, or something custom developed.

Pages on your Drupal site are laid out in Regions. These can include the header, footer, sidebars, and main content regions. Your theme may define additional regions.
Blocks are discrete chunks of information that are displayed in the regions of your site's pages. Blocks can take the form of static chunks of HTML or text, menus (which are for site navigation), the output from modules (e.g. hot forum topics), or dynamic listings that you've created yourself (e.g. a list of upcoming events).
- he Main menu is built by site administrators and displayed automatically in the page header of many themes (and if not, you can enable their blocks to display them).
- Management is the administration menu, and is presented in the Admin toolbar.
- Navigation is a catch-all menu that usually contains links supplied by modules on your site.
- User menu contains links to the User account and the logout link.
Although not all sites have Views, most sites include the Views module because of the excellent tools it provides. Views allows people to choose a list of nodes or other entities and present them as pages, blocks, RSS feeds, or other formats. The main use case for views is to create dynamically updating lists to content (for example, a listing of latest news), based on properties of that content (in the case of the news listing, that the content type is “News” and sorted by publication date).
