Activity Overview


The culture in the Midwest is centered around food, fun, and music. Visitors and residents enjoy outdoor activities such as ice fishing and skiing. Rock and roll and Motown are rooted in the Midwest. Spider maps are an excellent tool to help students organize facts in a systematic and visual manner. For this activity, students will create a spider map that illustrates different aspects of Midwestern culture. To differentiate, teachers could encourage students to complete more than 3 cells.
