Steep relief is the steepness of the hills in a valley... it looks like this... \_/ :)

Right, so the people in the valleys let the animals live on the \ and / parts (steep land), and they live on the _ part. This is much flatter, and means it is easier to build on. The animals move up the hills in the summer because they can eat the grass in the hills. They come down in the winter.

Hope this helps :)
