Module: Exploring the United States Southwest
Migrate image map

Students will use maps to better understand how different factors work together to create a dynamic, complex, and ever-changing society. Students will explore how maps help explain change over time as well as what they tell us about the people who lived in that time. This module focuses on the different people who migrated, settled and developed societies in the regions of Mesoamerica, the Southwest United States, and the broader United States.

Carla L. Mendiola, Adjunct Lecturer in History at San Antonio College, created this module. 

The project makes use of Arc Internet Map Server (ArcIMS) software developed by Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI), Inc. SAC is a site-licensed, designated ESRI educational institution.
