1. Mark the major producing areas of
- corn (orange),
- wheat (red),
- soy bean (magenta) and
- cotton (green)
in Northern America on your map according to the information provided in your atlas.
If you don't have an atlas at hand use the online atlas of the United States:
Click on the + of agriculture and select the product
(soybean, cotton, corn, wheat),
then click on "50 states" and here comes your map (1997 data).
Continue with the other products.
Use the "zoom in" function to see more detail, add the "streams and waterbodies" and decide if this is helpful or not.
Use the print function (best for color printer) and make your own selection of maps.
(Admittedly, our worksheet was made with the Diercke Weltatlas, which explains some differences.)
