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.
