Colombian Geography: Tradition and Current Status Research and scholarly writing in geography is a well-grounded tradition in Colombia . Nowadays, the country ranks high in the Hispanic American region in the trend of geographic development, but the practice of geography runs back to the very beginnings of the nation in the early sixteenth century. The pre-modern phase of that history has been aptly detailed by Acevedo Latorre A book entitled Summa de Geografía by Fernández de Enciso was the first geographic work prepared in the New World shortly after the Discovery and then published in Spain in 1519. Since the onset of the colonial period, the Spanish chroniclers set forth in their writings a learned geographical tradition that was continued over the centuries both in the form of studies by individuals and as comprehensive reports by corporate expeditions in which geographic accounts were a substantive ingredient. Of the latter kind were the Fidalgo Expedition (1794-1810), which surveyed and mapped the Caribbean coast for the Crown, and simultaneously the Botanical Expedition, led by the well-known Spanish botanist José Celestino Mutis. Mutis and his Creole associates carried out extensive research on vegetation and other natural resources of

General Objectives
The social studies program is the basis for instruction in K-4 and K-5. Concepts in math, language, science, and the Life Curriculum are built on the various units of the social studies program. The curriculum is constantly revised as are the ways in which student progress is assessed. Parents' input is encouraged and is often made part of the educational process. In preprimary the program allows the children to progress and master objectives as they mature and explore their environment. The teachers closely monitor the students' progress in the given curriculum objectives
Starting from the 2nd grade, the minimal requirement for social studies is three 45 min. periods a week. "Sociales" is taught by a specialist, independently from social studies, during 19 periods a year. Social studies encompasses the study of ecology (water, air, soil, and recycling) integrated with science; of basic geography (with emphasis on map skills), of geographical features and of native American cultures. ""Sociales" covers the understanding of the economy, government and laws of Cali, Valle, and colombia, and of pre-Colombian history and native Indian cultures Social studies and "sociales" teachers complement their teaching with readings, field trips, reports, and art projects. Students observation (anecdotal), tests, and quizzes are frequent means of evaluation.

Foreword Text by:
Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza Because of its special geographical location, Colombia has been called the "house on the corner" of South America. In this part of the New World it is the only country with one face on the Atlantic and another on the Pacific. But its singularity does not stop here. Colombia, in addition, is a country of synthesis, a crossroads, a favored spot where the regions, landscapes, peoples and cultures of the South American continent converge cachaco with his restrictions, his ceremonial, his distances and protocols, and his dramatic sense of death Nor does the many-sidedness of Colombia stop here. In the eastern part of the country vast tropical plains open one, a replica of the Brazilian and the Argentine pampas, perhaps too of the Old West of the United States. Moreover, its mythology recalls that of the great steppes, overpowering in their boundless distances. Its life has the same harshness. Broad rivers, herons, pooled water, a gallop of colts, overemphatic dusks and sudden dawns which lift bands of parrots above the palm trees: this is the world in which the plainsman moves, the age-old horseman inured to distances and the rough freedom they give

Geography Colombia is located in Northern South America, bordering the Caribbean Sea, between Panama and Venezuela, and bordering the North Pacific Ocean, between Ecuador and Panama. It is about three times the size of Montana with a tropical climate along the coast and eastern plains, but cooler in the highlands. Some natural disasters include highlands subject to volcanic eruptions, occasional earthquakes, and periodic droughts. Deforestation, soil damage from overuse of pesticides, and air pollution from vehicle use are some environmental concerns presently. Colombia consists of five regions, the Atlantic coastal region, The Pacific coastal region, The Andean coastal region, The Llanos, and the Amazon region, all having their own varieties of music.

    Introduction [Top of Page] Background: Colombia was one of the three countries that emerged from the collapse of Gran Colombia in 1830 (the others being Ecuador and Venezuela). A 40-year insurgent campaign to overthrow the Colombian Government escalated during the 1990s, undergirded in part by funds from the drug trade. Although the violence is deadly and large swaths of the countryside are under guerrilla influence, the movement lacks the military strength or popular support necessary to overthrow the government. While Bogota continues to try to negotiate a settlement, neighboring countries worry about the violence spilling over their borders.

    Colombia stretches over approximately 1,140,000 sq. km, roughly equal to the area of Portugal, Spain, and France put together. Colombia occupies the northwestern end of South America, and is the only country there with coasts on both the Pacific (1350 km long), and the Atlantic (over 1600 km.) Three Andean ranges run north and south through the western half of the country (about 45% of the total territory.) The eastern part is a vast lowland which can be generally divided into two regions: a huge open savannah on the north, and the amazon in the south (400,000 sq. km aprox.)

    Geography of Venezuela
    World Facts Index Venezuela Map of Venezuela Located at the northernmost end of South America, Venezuela has a total area of 912,050 square kilometers and a land area of 882,050 square kilometers, about twice the size of California. Shaped roughly like an inverted triangle, the country has a 2,800-kilometer coastline and is bounded on the north by the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, on the east by Guyana, on the south by Brazil, and on the west by Colombia. Topography Most observers describe Venezuela in terms of four fairly well-defined regions: the Maracaibo lowlands in the northwest, the northern mountains extending in a broad east-west arc from the Colombian border along the Caribbean Sea, the wide Orinoco plains in central Venezuela, and the highly dissected Guiana highlands in the southeast. The Maracaibo lowlands form a large spoon-shaped oval bounded by mountains on three sides and open to the Caribbean on the north. The area is remarkably flat with only a gentle slope toward the center and away from the mountains that border the region. Lago de Maracaibo occupies much of the lower-lying territory. Areas around the southern part of Lago de Maracaibo are swampy, and, despite the rich agricultural land and significant petroleum deposits, the area was still thinly populated in 1990. The mountains bordering the Caribbean Sea are actually the northeasternmost extension of the Andes chain. Broken by several gaps, these high mountains have peaks over 4,500 meters; the fertile valleys between the ranges contain most of Venezuela's population, industry, and agriculture. The discontinuous westernmost range runs along the Colombian border and is the least densely populated part of this region. The ranges southeast of Lago de Maracaibo contain some of the highest peaks in the country (Pico Bolívar reaches 5,007 meters), a few of which are snowcapped year-round.

    geography Natural Regions. coastal plain, where it becomes partly sumerged under thick beds of sediment deposited by the rivers draining the colombian Andes.
    GEOGRAPHY: Natural Regions
    Colombia is made up of two major physical regions: the Andes, with its large valleys and basins in the west; and the broad lowlands, which extend over almost two-thirds of the country in the east. The population is concentrated in the valleys and basins of the mountain region, while the lowlands are sparsely inhabited. The physical structure of the mountain region and the direction of its main ranges and valleys are a dominant factor in the distribution of the population, with orientation toward the Caribbean (rather than the Pacific) coast, where most of the country's ports are located.
    The Andes
    The mountain region consists of three ranges of the Andes: Cordillera Occidental, Cordillera Central, and Cordillera Oriental, all of which have a general south-north orientation. The Cordillera Oriental has a complex and varied structure. It consists of short, noncountinuous ridges that follow a north-south direction, with some ridges running nearly parallel. This is particularly so in the middle part of the range, from the vecinity of Bogota northward, where it reaches its maximum width of 140 miles. The Cordillera Oriental rises well above the snow line, and extensive areas are snow-covered the year around. Another feature of the Cordillera Oriental is a number of high basins, three of which are comparatively large, resembling intermont plateaus. The Capital
