Adopt a Marsh

You are the Grower! Select your Marsh!

Adopt a Marsh is the second section of the Exploring Cranberries program. Unlike the other two sections which contain individual lessons, Adopt a Cranberry Marsh is one comprehensive, integrated lesson that unfolds over the course of two to three, 45- minute class sessions. Students’ objective is to choose one marsh among three to adopt. Their choice should be guided by their understanding of what makes a successful cranberry marsh. To help them make this decision, students are coached by virtual cranberry growers as they investigate critical features of a thriving cranberry marsh. After their careful research on the three prospective marshes, student pairs eventually select one to adopt, and receive feedback on their decisions.
