Unit 3: Environmental justice
Lesson 11 of 16

Objective: Students will be able to 1) describe how historical maps of California's delta reveal competing ideas about its purpose; 2) define a stakeholder; and 3) articulate competing stakeholder needs in the California delta

Big Idea: Scientists use geographic information systems to develop maps of important features of physical geography. How might we use the California delta as a case study of how maps can be arguments for stakeholders’ ideas about how to use the environment?
