Individual categorized polygons in a shape file

I am quite new to using arcmap and I am experiencing difficulties figuring out a technical that will make my mapping work a lot easier.


I need to use arcmap to map geomorphological features in an overview map, I want to have one shape file where I can have multiple numbers of more "individual" polygons (eg one for say glacier, one for slope systems, one for bedrock and so on), where I can name each group of polygons and assign the categorized polygons in different colors.


Right now I can just draw a bunch of polygons in one shape file but I can`t categorize/ colorise them in any way. I started out doing a new shape file for each geomorphological feature, but qucikly realised that is not the best way.


Can someone please help me?
