Standard 1- Map of the U.S and Mexican border.http://www.pbs.org/kera/usmexicanwar/timeline_flash.htm

Standard 4 -Physical and human characteristics of a place. This shows the geography of a city El Paso being an urban area. We also learn the activity in a city such as the plant and animal life.

Standard 7-Focuses on physical patters such as a strem that shape patterns of the earth. I can explain how a slick cliff occurs.

Standard 6- focuses on how peoples culture and experience influence peoples view of regions and places. We all have a different cultural background and beliefs about people, and places. They may be from experience or from lack of experience.

Standard 10- Focuses on the cultural aspect of the borderlands.

On cinco de Mayo I enjoy watching the women spin in their bright colorful dresses.

Standard 8- focuses on how our physical world changes with spatial distribution of ecosystems biomes on earth surfaces.

Standard 5- Focuses on the difference in regions; formal, functional and perceptul. The borderlands of the U.S and Mexico are formal regions. In order to be considered a a formal region the region must hold characterized by common human property, or by a common physical property. I believe that the U.S-Mexican border is formal because they have these characteristics. United States and Mexico borders are very close but on each side you will be able to see a difference in the area. In you are in the United States the majority of the people in the borderlands will speak English and are American and on the Mexico side they will speak Spanish and are Mexicans. This is a common human property in which a place shares a language and nationality. The borderland in the United States versus Mexico is sort of the same; desert, dry etc. but there are always land forms such that can give you clues of what region you are in.National Geographic, 10/24/13, Geographic Standard 5, That people create regions to interpret Earth's complexity, http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/standards/national-geography-standards/5/?ar_a=1

Standard 2- Mental Map of a person crossing the U.S- Mexican border, from Tijuana to San Diego.

Standard 3- Shows the patterns seen on the U.S Mexico boarderlands. Percentage of this population effects school programs.

Standard 9- Focuses on characteristics, distribution and migration of human population. This map shows the language diversity on the borderlands.

Standard 11- Focuses on the economic patterns between a country and its borderlands. Mexico and the United States have a economic connection with jobs and goods. Mexico is the world’s most open economy and the United States is the thirds largest partner. Mexican companies are now the largest suppliers of cement, baked good and dairy products to the United States market. Mexico is also the second supplier of oil to the U. S after Canada. http://www.cipe.org/blog/2012/06/20/why-you-should-care-about-mexico/#.UnApbfn_mSo

Standard 12- Focuses on the settlements on the borderlands. El Paso is the largest city on the west side of Texas and is known as the leader of international trade. Although next to the Mexican border El Paso is America’s safest city.

standard 13-focuses on the cooperation between borderland countries. Mexico and the United States cooperate in exports and 50 cents is paid to the United States for products and services. Meaning we earn half of Mexico’s exporting profit.

standard 14- teaches about how human actions modify human environment. Looking at the map it shows how the growth of the city of Las Vegas has empacted the environment. More buildings go up which effects natural environment.

Standard 15- Teaches us how physical systems effect human systems on the borderlands. In Arizona physical systems such as monsoon season brings along floods. Floods then effect how our human systems

Standard 16- Focuses on the importance of resources. Minner use minning buildings, cooper washes and other tools to get to the resources.
