Look at this map of California and use the color-coded map key to find “Land Use” down the middle of the state. This is the Great Central Valley.
Agriculture is the top land use in the Great Central Valley. Almonds, cattle, walnuts, and hay are some of the commodities (products that can be sold) grown here. Choose one commodity to read about, and then write a short report about what you learned. You can use a graphic organizer like this one to help you. Pretend you are a TV news reporter and read your report out loud to your family. If you can, have someone record you so you can watch your news report later.
Try this quick write to get your creativity flowing!
