A Map Of Where Your Food Originated May Surprise You
The great Russian plant explorer Nikolai Vavilov reasoned that crops originated in the region of the world where they, and their wild relatives, show up in greatest diversity. This map plots the center of origin and primary region of diversity for 151 different crops. (Some crops, like wheat, have more than one primary region of diversity.)
IN LOVE with this Latin America Hunt! Students can discover for themselves all about the geography of Latin America while improving their Atlas skills all at once! Not teaching about Latin America? That is ok! This is also great for early finishers to work on as a mini research activity!
