Many important natural resources come from the Midwest, including corn, wheat, dairy, livestock, and iron ore. For this activity, students will create a 3-5 cell spider map that illustrates different natural resources from the Midwest. Spider maps are an excellent tool to help students organize facts in a systematic and visual manner. To differentiate, teachers may choose to give the students a certain number of cells to create, or have the students choose between 3, 4, and 5 cells.
