This is my mental map of the way I get to work. Mental maps are used to explain a certain route to someone that you are familar with.

This image shows young children in what looks like a tub that was made into a swimming pool. There is a huge concern about the development of children in Mexico due to water quality and pollution.http://www.usgs.gov/blogs/features/usgs_top_story/united-states-mexican-borderlands-science-knows-no-boundaries/

This map represents the U.S. and Mexico borderlands. The border is highlighted in blue to differenciate between the 2 countries. Source: U.S. - Mexico Border [Photograph]. Retrieved February 25, 2015, from: http://www.theglobalarc.org/index.php/about/regions/u.s.-mexico_border/

The border states have the highest shares of the Mexican born population residing in the United States in 2006. California and Texas dominate, probably because of their larger overall population. Arizona only has about 5% of the Mexican born population in the same range as Illinois. Trudy, Rebert (2008). State proportion of the Mexican-born population of the United States. Retrieved from http://www.migrationinformation.org/pdf/MPI-Spotlight-on-Mexican-Immigrants-April-2008.pdf (2010, December 22)

This standard represents regions that are used to organize places on the earth. These regions can be cities, groups of people, or the environment. http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/megaregions/reports/regional_planning_organizations/page06.cfm

The United States and Mexico are working to meet the water demands for both countries. They are teaming up to share water from the Colorado River and the Sea of Cortez which will be beneficial to the environment. http://www.edf.org/sites/default/files/pulseflow/index.html

Living in Arizona and being so close to Mexico, there are a lot of stereotypes about people along the border. I try not to stereotype about people living along borderlines. I know that there are a lot of Mexican immigrants who are living close to the borderlines because it is easier for them to settle in a place that is close to their country.

This represents the environmental characteristics of an area and how it affects human acticity. The summers are very heated in Arizona, due to this, many people do in door activities to avoid dehydration. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/07/02/think-its-hot-now-this-map-shows-when-your-area-likely-will-have-its-warmest-day/

Mexico is very culturally based. Themost common religion in Mexico is Catholic. This is a picture of Mary and it is on highway 15 in Mexico which shows how important religion is to them. http://stujenks.typepad.com/stublog/mexico/
