Students have been giving a task of creating a relief map of an region of Colorado. Students will be working on their maps in class on Fridays leading up to the due date, (January 31).

Students will be identifying the geologic features of the area chosen.

Tell what period of Colorado History you are representing (Prehistoric, Native American Occupation, Explorers-Trappers-Traders, The Gold Rush, Westward Expansion).

Were there any historical people who might have been here, if so who?

We will be researching who may have lived in their region, what the people did to survive (their community or economy).

How did the people arrive there or how did they migrate to and from the area (covered wagon, settlers, train, nomadic migration)?

How did it change over time? (This would be if they chose a prehistoric representation since the geology included shifting continents, erosion, and possible glaciers).
