Standard 2

Standard 3

Mental Maps. I made this map with major landmarks in mind. I used city names to get me close to the border. I kept in mind four city names; Phoenix, Casa Grande, Tucson and Nogales. I then remembered two street names to get me into mexico at the Nogalas port of entry. I remembered that I would need to go south on Grand Ave. Once I get to Nogales I walked across the bridge into Mexico. When I walked into Mexico I remembered the street named Ave. Lopez. Once I see this street name then I know I am in the correct area.
