These canals lowered the level of friends began working togetherLake Okeechobee. The lowering of Lake Okeechobee inhibited the lakes natural tendency to clean upto overflow into the trash and contaminants in andeverglades. Urban growth along the banksAtlantic coastal strip accelerated after World War I. More and more water was diverted from the everglades. Almost simultaneously, an agriculture zone was developed south of north Florida’s Santa Fe River. Fifteen years later,Lake Okeechobee. Farming soon consumed huge quantities of water.

    Nine: Connecting geography to literature – Students with an established connection between ONE location and a work of literature (book or short story) will detail the connection, providing the following: A.) a brief summary of how why the action took place in the given locations; and B.) a brief summary of how the geogrical features of the location impacted the story’s setting.

Students arencouraged to gather information from family or community members and to report that information (attributed to those individuals) in their projects.
    Eleven: Artwork – A.) Students include an image (e.g. photograph, work of visual art, etc.) that is symbolic of ONE OR BOTH location(s) on their journey. B.)

    The state’s 1,200 miles of coastline, including estuaries, seagrass beds, mangrove swamps, and coral reefs, together with thousands of inland freshwater lakes, rivers, streams and springs, support numerous aquatic communities. Florida’s current and historic coastlines also influence its geology. Rising and receding seas deposited great quantities of limestone over many thousands of years, resulting in an abundance of karst features such as sinkholes, caves, depressions, limestone outcrops and more than 300 large artesian springs. A series of sand ridges in the central peninsula were once islands surrounded by a vast sea, isolating plants and animals that evolved into unique species. The state’s peninsular geography spans temperate and subtropical zones, which, combined with its distinctive geology and climate, contribute to habitat diversity as well as an amazing array of species.
    Florida’s geography can be divided into natural categories such as watersheds, corridors and ecoregions that can help in conservation planning and priority setting.

    Indian peoples lived in what is now Sinaloa for centuries before Spanish explorers came to Mexico in the 16th century. When the Spanish reached Sinaloa in the early 1530s, they encountered Mayos, Ocoronis, and many other Indian groups. The Spanish conquered the land and exploited its mineral wealth by setting up mines, using Indians as slave labor. The Spanish also established missions to convert the Indians to Roman Catholicism. Some Indians rebelled, but the Spanish quelled the uprisings. From the 1560s the Spanish ruled Sinaloa as part of a province called Nueva Vizcaya. In 1733 aloa and the territory of Sonora, to the north, became a separate territory called Sonora y Sinaloa. The two remained united after Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1821. In 1830 they became separate states. Population (2005 census), 2,608,442

    Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico
    ...
    City, capital of Sinaloa estado (state), northwestern Mexico. Situated on the Culiacán River about 50 miles (80 km) inland from the Gulf of California, it lies on a small coastal plain, about 200 feet (60 metres) above sea level. To the east rises the lofty Sierra Madre Occidental. Founded in 1531, Culiacán was an important early base for Spanish expeditions. The city is now a regional commercial and service centre. Its manufactures include processed tomatoes and other foods, beer, paper products, and cotton textiles. The city provides financial and administrative support for mines in the mountains that extract zinc, gold, lead, manganese, and other minerals. In the valley an elaborate irrigation system provides for a great variety of crops, including corn (maize), sugarcane, tobacco, and fruits and vegetables that are exported to the United States. Culiacán is the seat of the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (founded 1873) and other universities and technical colleges. It has an international airport and is connected by rail and highway with Heroica Nogales (in Sonora), Mexico City, and the ports of Mazatlán and Guaymas. Pop. (2000) 540,823; (2010) 675,773
