Geography Standards

Standard 1: Map of the barrier section along the U.S. and Mexico Borderland.http://filipspagnoli.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/border-apprehensions-us-mexico.pngStandard 5: In my opinion, these borderland are a "perceptual region." I believe this, because I think that only few people really know what the area is like and instead rely on what they perveive it to be like.

Standard 2: This is a mental map that I made of my commute to work.

Standard 3: In this map we notice the areas where there is a greater amount of Mexican citizens.http://24ahead.com/sites/default/files/mexican-immigration-map.jpg

Standard 4: The evidence of Human and Physical Geography is evident in these pictures of the Mexican Borderland and natural land structure on the Mexican side of the border.http://cdn.ph.upi.com/sv/b/upi/UPI-91081247517864/2009/1/7d4ff09d7c9b7180253d37b0b5fbad22/US-Mexico-border-wall-may-hurt-wildlife.jpg

Standard 6: My perceptions of an area like the borderlands was far different than it actually ended up being like. I had many stereotypical ideas of what the region would be like, and found many of them to be untrue.

Standard 7: This is a picture of the natural physical landscape of the U.S.-Mexico border. Notice the native plants and the mountains in the background.

Standard 8: The graph show the regions broken down according to religion. The people tend to be Catholic.

Standard 9: This graph gives an excellent example of population geography. The Hispanic and Latino population is much higher around the border region, and throughout the larger cities in the United States.http://www.raconline.org/racmaps/mapfiles/hispanic.jpg

Standard 10: The Mexico border region is rich with history and cultural traditions. There is always something to see and celebrate in the very diverse region.

Standard 11: The US and Mexico border region is economically connected in many ways. For example, many US companies build their factories on the Mexico side of the border and higher Mexican workers.http://www.cipamericas.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/Sweatshop.png

Standard 12: Evidence shows the the majority of people reside in cities. Furthermore, more and more people continue to move to the city. The border region is no exception, many large cities reside on the Mexican side of the border.http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/j/MSNBC/Components/Photo/_new/pb-130415-border-patrol-nj-10.photoblog900.jpg

Standard 13: The border region has always had conflict. As a result, the US border patrol was implemented to protect the border. However, both countries have also come together in many time as well. http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/j/MSNBC/Components/Photo/_new/pb-130415-border-patrol-nj-10.photoblog900.jpg

Standard 14: Humans have altered the natural environment of the borderlands in many ways. For instance, we build a border wall. We cleared natural plants and altered te environment for animals in the area.http://s.ngm.com/2007/05/us-mexican-border/img/border-wall-615.jpg

Standard 15: The physical environment in the region can be very intimidating in the rural areas. Many immigrants have died attempting to cross the border in these areas.http://viajandosinfronteras.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/dsc_04471.jpg

Standard 16: The land around the borderland is very dry and has little agriculture. As a result, the most abundant and valuable resource is water. In this picture you see the Rio Grande River, which runs along the border between the US and Mexico.http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get/I0000n14W78V7nKk/s/850/850/20121008-nm-tex-3581.jpg

Standard 17: Many of the cities along the borders have geographic histroies of being small farm areas. However, many have grwon as the result of work along the border.http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/3/3c/Nogales_1899.jpg/1280px-Nogales_1899.jpg

Standard 18: Geography has many awesome perks. For instance, the many great cultural traditions that have been brought to American from Mexico. While many of the negative effects get the majority of the focus, lets try not to forget the awesome parts of cultural geography.http://projectsmrj.pbworks.com/f/1305821980/Mexican_American_Flag_roc4life.png
