Make a Local Berry Map!

Make a Local Berry Map (Grades 3-5)

Read “Berry Book” by Gail Gibbons. On a map of the United States, find your home and mark it with a star. Near that star, draw and label pictures of the berries that local farmers grow in your area. Then research other berries and where they are grown throughout our country. For example, marionberries grow in Oregon and dewberries grow in North Carolina.

Standards:

  • GSE Standard SS3G1. Locate major topographical features on a physical map of the United States.
  • GSE Standard SS3G3. Describe how physical systems affect human systems.
  • GSE Standard ELAGSE4RI7: Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.
