What are some connections among cranberry culture, people, and the land?

Lesson Plan:








The story of the cranberry bog is really one of the cranberry itself and the land, people, and changes, that take place over time. Rather than thinking about this history existing as a chronological list of events, it can be viewed as a dynamic set of relationships that began long ago – even before the cranberry arrived on the scene in Southeastern Massachusetts. The interactions continue to this day.

As you read and work with your students around the reading, “The Cranberry through Time, it may help to focus on the theme of relationships.  The Cranberry Connections Match game prompts students to explore and articulate some of these connections. The story of the cranberry bog may parallel many local and world history stories that you are studying in your classroom. You may wish to pull out these parallels as you discuss the cranberry bog in particular.
