Batesville Forest Laurel Picayune ... Yazoo City MISSISSIPPI - Geography One of the Deep South states of the United States. It is bordered by Alabama (E), the Gulf of Mexico (S), Arkansas and Louisiana, with most of the border formed by the Mississippi R. (W), and Tennessee (N). Mississippi's generally hilly landscape reaches its highest point (806 ft/246 m) in the northeastern corner of the state along the Tennessee River. The most distinctive region in the state's varied topography is the Mississippi Delta, a flat alluvial plain between the Mississippi and the Yazoo rivers in the western part of the state. A wide belt of longleaf yellow pine (the piney woods) covers most of southern Mississippi to within a few miles of the coastal-plain grasslands. Important there are lumbering and allied industries. Most of the state's rivers belong to either the Mississippi or the Alabama river systems, with the Pontoctoc Ridge the divide. The climate of Mississippi is subtropical in the southern part of the state and temperate in the northern part; the average annual rainfall is more than 50 in. (127 cm). The state, in the path of waterfowl migration routes down the Mississippi valley and home to many species of birds, is noted for its duck and quail hunting. Along the Gulf Coast, a favorite fishing area, are several resort cities and part of Gulf Islands National Seashore. Historical sites in Mississippi include Old Spanish Fort, the oldest house on the Mississippi River, near Pascagoula, as well as Vicksburg National Military Park, Brices Cross Roads National Battlefield Site, and Tupelo National Battlefield Site (see National Parks and Monuments, table). In Natchez and Biloxi are many fine antebellum mansions. Jackson is the capital and largest city. Other important cities are Biloxi, Greenville, Hattiesburg, and Meridian.

    GEOGRAPHY The Missouri River is one of the longest rivers in the United States second only to the Mississippi. It's total length is 2,315 miles. The Missouri travels through seven states as it makes it's way to St. Louis, Mo. where it meets with the Mississippi. The Missouri has the nickname "Big Muddy," because of the large amount of silt that it carries. It also has a large number of tributaries feeding into it along it's path. The total basin that drains into the river covers 530,000 square miles. The Missouri River drains one-sixth of the United States flowing from from its headwaters at the confluence of the Gallatin, Madison, and Jefferson Rivers in the Rocky Mountains at Three Forks, Montana, to its confluence with the Mississippi River at St. Louis, Missouri. The basin is home to about 10 million people from 28 Native American tribes, 10 states (Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming), and a small part of Canada. Precipitation in the basin varies from an annual mean of 40 inches in the interior highlands of the Missouri Ozarks to 10 inches in the dry upland plains of North and South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana. The basin’s elevation drops from 14,000 foot peaks at its northwestern boundary to about 400 feet where it joins the Mississippi.

    Geography Rivers are the outstanding geographic features of the five Minnesota counties (Hennepin, Ramsey, Anoka, Dakota and Washington) included in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area. Here the Mississippi pours over the only waterfall in its entire length and is joined by the Minnesota River from the west and the St. Croix from the northeast. A lock now brings watercraft past the Falls of St. Anthony to the upper harbor, in downtown Minneapolis.
    The Falls of St. Anthony, given its present name by French missionary Louis Hennepin, is shown in this painting by the artist Henry Lewis as it looked in the 1840s.
    Prized by Euro-Americans for its water power, the falls became a saw-milling center and the nucleus of an industrial city in the 1850s. Drawing from Harpers Monthly Vol. XXX No. 1534.
    In the 1870s and 1880s sawmills at the falls gave way to flour mills, and Minneapolis became famous as the world's breadbasket. Drawing from Harpers Monthly Vol. XXX No. 1534.
    Below the falls, the banks of the river rise steeply, forming a narrow gorge, and it is joined by Minnehaha Creek. This stream rises in a cluster of lakes to the west of Minneapolis. As it approaches the Mississippi, it pours over a scenic waterfall.

    LOUIS geography. St. is located on 61 square miles just south of the Meeting ofthe Rivers, where the Missouri and Illinois Rivers join the mississippi River
    ABOUTST. LOUIS: GEOGRAPHY LOCATION The City of St. Louis is located on 61 square miles just south of the "Meeting of the Rivers," where the Missouri and Illinois Rivers join the Mississippi River. The City is at the center of a 12 county, 7,000 square mile metropolitan area that includes approximately 2.5 million people. The area is a relatively short distance by airplane, automobile or train from such other cities as Kansas City (250 miles), Chicago (300 miles) Indianapolis (250 miles) and Memphis (300 miles). PHYSIOGRAPHY GEOLOGY DEVELOPMENT PATTERNS The City of St. Louis is 100% urbanized. However, as a result of abandonment, dereliction and contamination of properties, there are many opportunities for redevelopment of small sites within the city limits. More challenging is combining small sites some publicly-owned by the city's Land Reutilization Authority (LRA) or other agencies, and some privately owned to create substantially sized sites for new residential and industrial development. Office Space: Retail: Traditionally, downtown St. Louis was the premier retail center of the metropolitan area. Although that role has declined, downtown retains a substantial selection of unique shops, as well as two department stores (Dillard's and Famous-Barr) and two enclosed shopping malls (Union Station and St. Louis Centre). Outside downtown, City retail generally consists of corner stores and strip development along major arteries. Significant retail strips include the Central West End shopping and restaurant district along Euclid Avenue, the Grand South Grand area just south of Tower Grove Park, and Cherokee Street with its Hispanic businesses west of Jefferson Ave. and "Antique Row" east of Jefferson Ave. A few major auto-oriented shopping centers are located in the City. They include the Hampton Village Shopping Center at Hampton and Chippewa, Lindell Marketplace at Lindell and Sarah, and City Plaza at Union and Natural Bridge.

    Native American Geography
    The Natchez, who occupied a territory east of the Mississippi stretching north-eastward from the site of the City of Natchez, along the borders of the Pearl River to the head-waters of the Chickasahaw River, claimed to be an older nation than the Uchees. Like the other Indians of the Gulf region, they were fire and sun worshippers, and made sacrifices to the great luminary. The Mobilians or Floridians occupied a very large territory that bordered on the Gulf of Mexico. It stretched along the Atlantic coast from the mouth of the Cape Fear River to the extremity of the Florida peninsula, and westward to the Mississippi River. They also held jurisdiction up that stream to the mouth of the Ohio River. Their domain included the States of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, all of Georgia not occupied by the Cherokees and Uchees, and portions of South Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky. The nation was divided into three confederacies, known respectively as the Creek, Choctaw and Chickasaw.
    Under the general title of Dakotas or Sioux, have been grouped a vast number of tribes west of the Mississippi River and the great lakes, with whom the earlier French explorers came in contact. They spoke, apparently, dialects of the same language, and were regarded as one nation. They inhabited the vast domain stretching northward from the Arkansas River to the western tributaries of Lake Winnepeg, and westward along that line to the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. These have been arranged in four classes, namely, the Winnebagoes, the Assinniboins or Sioux proper, the Minetarees and the Southern Sioux.

    Geography and Environmental Conditions
    Contents Introduction Geography and Environmental Conditions Chronological Considerations Initial Human Occupation Widespread Settlement Terminal Paleoindian Occupations ... References Cited The southeastern United States as defined in this study encompasses the modern political units of Alabama, Arkansas, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. This region, while demarcated by modern political and resource management considerations, closely corresponds to various definitions of a southeastern Native American culture area advanced by anthropologists over the past century. That is, the area contains a number of related societies whose cultural similarities are believed due, in part, to fundamental characteristics of environment and geography, and to a shared history. The Southeast retains such an identity to this day, although precise definitions of what constitutes its boundaries vary somewhat from person to person (see Smith 1986 for a map showing various scholarly definitions of the Native American southeastern cultural area, none of which, however, vary appreciably from one another).

    -one semester- Mississippi Studies is a one semester course designed to foster appreciation for the state and its culture. The content will include the geographic, historic, economic, political, and social events that have contributed to the state’s development. The course will trace Mississippi’s transition from agriculture to industry and its effort to expand participation in the political process. The course will include the study of the diverse contributions of the citizens of the state. Additionally, civic concepts will be developed in order to encourage active participation in the political process of the state and nation. Skill development will include, but is not limited to, the interpretation and application of maps, graphs, charts, political cartoons, primary documents, and other social studies tools. The avenues for these concepts are developed through the social studies strands. The social studies curriculum is designed to be taught in a developmental sequence. This means the instruction proceeds from the simple to the complex, beginning with the child’s immediate geographic world and expanding to the world, using history, civics, and economics to develop the child’s knowledge and perspectives. The expanding theme that is incorporated in this framework refers to a curriculum progression in the study of people from self, families, communities, cities, regions, United States to the world.
