National Geography Standards

Standard 1: Map of the US Mexico border and Standard 5: What is the region of the borders?The borderlands of U.S. and Mexico are a formal region. The border between the U.S. and Mexico as declared between both countries in a treaty, so this was human made. Not geologically or physically produced.The Treaty of 1848 was created to establish the boundary between the United States and Mexico. The Rio Grande is part of this border, and even though it is a geological creation, this was chosen as part of the border. On a map, it is evident where the international borders are, especially now with the “wall” up.Source:

Standard 6: My cultural background and how it affects my view of the borders. Growing up in west TX, it was all about Friday Night Football. That was the main part of our culture. This didn't have any affect on the borderlands. I knew that the Rio Grande divded part of TX and Mexico and that we could cross the border to go to Juarez or Tijuana. Nothing exciting about me!
