Topic: California Statistics/Maps
We have been searching the internet for the past 5 hours for a map of california, which would show the major cities, population, fruits/vegetables/crops, cattle/sheep main points of highlight for california. We are at our wits end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please find a solution for our problem so that we may end our journey and finally we may rest for the night,
4th grade parents
Dear 4th grade parents-
There isnt a map available like the one you mention. The idea is usually for the kids to create one. Many times the fruits/vegetables and crops are in their social studies book.
Here is a good printable California Map from National Geographic.
We also have a number of other maps available here.
Population statistics are available on our quick facts page (check the US census for the population the last link on the page). For population, if you print a county a county map of California then you can put the population for each county, and then use the National Geographic map for the major cities.
We just put up a new page that shows farmland and forests.
However, prompted by your email. I spent quite a bit of time today looking for the crops and livestock information again. This time I finally found some government maps that will help you.
Simply look down the list for a map that has the sort of thing that youre looking for- such as Milk Cows inventory 2002, click on the map and youll see the distribution of the farms that carry beef cows. You can then mark your map counties with a cow in the heavily dotted areas.
These are always difficult projects that take a lot of work. Often, there are maps in their school books that show some of this information, especially the crops.
Hopefully this will make the project easier.
