According to Document D, the Aztec built artiﬁcial islands to farm crops on. Crops including, squash, corn, maize, beans, and ﬂowers.

Set in prehistoric times, West Africa has ample water with it being laborious to get to, but through these obstacles West Africa succeeded to grow crops including maize. Commonly known foods to be "Mexican," cultivated in Central America including corn, squash, and beans, which provided a protein based diet for the people. South America, similarly to Central America, grew wheat and corn to expand and sustain their
‘Pre-Columbian Indigenous Americans’ foodways were a foundational aspect to the modern American diet. Food used by Native American tribes would greatly transform the European diet. The study of Mesoamerican foodways allows us think about why important crops such as maize, potato is still widely used today. Foodways studies, particularly Pre-Columbian foodways, are critical to our historical understanding relating to early agricultural practices, political economies, and how plants and animals were domesticated. Great empires such as the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas inhabited vast lands of Central and South America.
By 4000 BCE, the Olmecs had a staple crop of maize, and agricultural cities began springing up by 3000 BCE. The towns/villages were built in an area of abundant rain, and the Olmecs were also able to construct elaborate drainage systems. As a result of agriculture cities along this area began to grow. As noted earlier in what a complex society is, once the basic needs of a society have been met, specialization begins to start. These were the building blocks of the next society, the city of Teotihuacan.
In the other hand, the Mayan civilization developed in Yucatan Peninsula around 200 B.C., and mysterious disappeared around 900 A.D. However, these two cultures share many factors in common such as developing calendars and building pyramids. Even though civilizations developed in different time periods, they can still have many factors in common such as environment, language, and architecture. Although the two civilizations flourished in different parts of the world, their environment shared some common features. As noted before, the Mayans thrived in the Yucatan peninsula, which is made up of jungles and lowlands.
Much of the economic sector within the community is agricultural based. Many Mexican-American in the early 20th century were braceros and vaqueros. Vikki Ruiz mention the Economic status of Mexicans, and states, “Pushed by the economic and political chaos generated by the Mexican Revolution and lured by jobs in U.S. agribusiness and industry, they settled into existing barrios and forged new communities both in the Southwest and the Midwest” (Ruiz, p.265). these communities were build on the economic opportunity available of migration. Mexican American believe in the concept of the American dream; therefore, they sought the best economic opportunity for their situation, most commonly agribusiness opportunity.
The Mayan civilization was a Mesoamerican civilization developed by the Mayan peoples, which stood out in America1 for its hieroglyphic writing, one of the few fully developed writing systems of the pre-Columbian American continent, as well as for its art, architecture and systems of mathematics, astronomy and ecology.2 It was developed in the region that encompasses the southeast of Mexico, corresponding to the states of Yucatan, Campeche, Tabasco, Quintana Roo and eastern Chiapas, as well as in most of Guatemala, Belize, the western part of Honduras and El Salvador. This region is composed of the northern lowlands that encompass the Yucatan peninsula, the highlands of the Sierra Madre that extends through the Mexican state of Chiapas, southern

In 1845, the idea of Manifest Destiny was created by John O’Sullivan. Manifest Destiny continued to have a large impact on the development of the U.S. Furthermore, Manifest Destiny helped unite the U.S. through the common goal to expand, however, it further developed the split on slavery. Documents one, four, and six show that Manifest destiny led to a common goal to expand westward, specifically, unifying whig and democratic parties to a common objective. The first document was from a Whig journal and it is clear that he was for expansion,” the natural progress of events will undoubtedly give us that province[California]”(document one).
The global economic system included trade routes, exports and imports, and industrial enterprises. Trade routes were one of the most important characteristics of the global economic system. During this period, there were several trade routes that resulted in the discovery of new lands. In document 1, it shows Europeans exploring along the coasts of Africa, North America, South America, and Asia. This happened during 1420through 1542.

England began colonizing the Americas in the early 1600’s, the first step in creating the United States we know today. The development of these colonies, historians argue, was most greatly affected by environmental and geographic variations. I support, yet modify, this statement to be that the individual culture of each colony was shaped by the area’s geographical features and surroundings. It was not the people that determined the culture, but the peoples reaction to their geography that molded the culture. Therefore, the main influencer was the geography and natural features of the land.
The Olmecs Early Agriculture in Mesoamerica Mesoamerican people began to cultivate manioc, beans, chili peppers, avocados, and gourds.
