Lesson Overview

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

Lesson Plan:








In this lesson, students become familiar with important events and people in the history of the cranberry bog and examine relationships within and among the people, the historical events, and the bog itself.  After reading and discussing the selection, “The Cranberry through Time”, student teams play a matching card game. During this game, students apply what they learned from the story to express connections, or relationships, between key ideas in the reading selection.  The lesson concludes with “Cranberry Court” where disputes about the veracity of the relationships are discussed and resolved.  As a result of this lesson, students not only begin to gain a historical perspective of the cranberry bog, but they also have the opportunity to strengthen their language arts competency.
