The student will locate countries on a world map from which we import foods that our climate prevents us from growing locally.1. Discuss the term "export." Divide students into groups of four. Give the groups five minutes to brainstorm agricultural products that would be exports from your state. 2. As a class, have students choose an item that cannot be grown in your state due to weather conditions. Use an encyclopedia to find where the item grows, and locate the area on a world map.

I use Lesson Planet for supplementary activities/projects every week. I'm currently researching for a current events rubric and found several options. It's great!
