Maps and Models

Students study maps of New Mexico examining settlement patterns over time and the location of water sources. They research the history of their community and discover how cultural groups interacted, adapted to their physical environments, and allocated water for their needs. Finally they construct a three-dimensional clay model of land forms in their community.
