Adopt a Bog is the second section of the Exploring Cranberries program. Unlike the other two sections which contain individual lessons, Adopt a Bog is one comprehensive, integrated lesson that unfolds over the course of two to three, 45- minute class sessions. Students’ objective is to choose one bog among three to adopt. Their choice should be guided by their understanding of what makes a successful cranberry bog. To help them make this decision, students are coached by virtual cranberry growers as they investigate critical features of a thriving cranberry bog. After their careful research on the three prospective bogs, student pairs eventually select one to adopt, and receive feedback on their decisions.
