18 National Geography Standards

Standard 1: How to use maps and other geographic representations, geospatial technologies, and spatial thinking to understand and communicate information. This map identifies the U.S. Mexican Borderlands by using color division between Mexico and the United States. Source: http://longgame.org/wp-content/uploads/border_states_map_roads.jpg

Standard 2: How to use mental maps to organize information about people, places, and environments in a spatial context. This mental map provides information over the U.S. Mexican Borderlands. It is very clear and easy to read since it only shows a few cities in Arizona and one city in Mexico. The Border is a clear divider between the two countries.Source: http://4e7221.medialib.glogster.com/media/acb2b7cc0a62e040992ee133571c17f3fbdcd0b04f2944fe3f961455024208b9/mental-map.jpg

Standard 3: How to analyze the spatial organization of people, places, and environments on Earth's surface. This map of the U.S. Mexican Borderlands has a key that shows the location of important cities, federal lands, boundaries, etc. Source: http://vertigo.revues.org/docannexe/image/9721/img-1-small580.png

Standard 4: The physical and human characteristics of places. This first photo shows the characteristics of the fence built along the border. The second photo shows the physical feature of the colorado river that runs along the U.S. Mexican Borderlands.Sources:http://9044c4.medialib.edu.glogster.com/media/7a/7a5bbcb4ce8883fc242620a291a366495f64b2c56bc03fedbc5bdb3ed360469e/border-fence.jpghttp://www.azgfd.gov/artman/uploads/wln_081120_lcrmscp_backwaters.jpg

Standard 5: That people create regions to interpret Earth's complexity.The U.S. and Mexican Borderlands are a "formal region." By definition a formal region is "characterized by a common human property." This fit the U.S. and Mexican Borderlands best, in my opinion. I think the other regions were to broad and didn't pin point exactly what the U.S. Mexican Borderlands consist of.Source: http://s371539307.onlinehome.us/2012/wp-2012/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/border2012-workgroup-map.gif

18 National Geography Standards: U.S.-Mexican Borderlands

Standard 6. How culture and experience influence people's perceptions of places and regions. This image shows how these individuals brought their Mexican culture into America.

Standard 7. The physical processes that shape the patterns of Earth's surface. This image shows how the physical features of the Sand Dunes shapes the Earth.

Standard 8. The characteristics and spatial distribution of ecosystems on Earth's surface. This photo represents the dryness and extreme heat along the borderlands. Sopurce: http://nacla.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/extra_large_image/wysiwyg_imageupload/3871/lucresia.jpg

Standard 9. The characteristics, distribution, and migration of human populations on Earth's surface. This image represents the population of the U.S.-Mexican Borderlands. I saw that in Los Angeles, San Diego and Tijuana there was much more human population than other places around the certain around of the map. That area is in darker red, meaning it has a population of more than 500 people. This doesn't surprise me because since it is the U.S./Mexican Borderlands it is highly populated with illegals crossing over from Tijuana into Los Angeles.

Standard 10. The characteristics, distribution, and complexity of Earth's cultural mosaics. This looks like the classic Mexican family meal. Tacos, corn, rice, salsa, etc. I work in a Mexican restaurant so this is exactly what I see everyday when I am at work and this image reminds me of a typical Mexican feast.Source: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b2/CornmealProducts.jpg

Standard 11. The patterns and networks of economic interdependence on Earth's surface. This is a large factory in Mexico that is basically the slavery form.Source: http://dgmtrading.us/images/contenido/42-16654095.jpg

Standard 12. The processes, patterns, and functions of human settlement. This is a picture of Sasabe, Arizona. When the Gadsden Purchase was signed in 1854 settling the border dispute between Mexico and the United States, the Rancho De La Osa Guest Ranch fell within the US boundaries.Source: http://www.ranchodelaosa.com/history.html

Standard 13. How the forces of cooperation and conflict among people influence the division and control of Earth's surface. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFC), focuses on improving foreign policies for the United States and other countries.

Standard 14. How human actions modify the physical environment. Humans can modify the environment in both positive and negative ways, as mining as shown. Source: http://online.nmartmuseum.org/assets/images/NMHistory/NM600/Logsdon-WaterChinoMine.jpg

Standard 15. How physical systems affect human systems. This image shows the how flash flooding can affect the human system by running through towns and destroying anything in its path. Source: http://www.tsheringtobgay.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/thimphu-flash-flood-26-may.jpg

Standard 17. How to apply geography to interpret he past. Looking at old maps from the past can help us see how the country has changed and grown. Source: https://jimsbikeblog.files.wordpress.com/2009/12/oldspanishtrailmap.png

Standard 18. How to apply geography to interpret the present and plan for the future. This map shows a prediction of 2020's population. Source: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/05/27/article-1391346-0C4A225000000578-190_468x366.jpg
