Of Mice and Men

Of Mice and Men book Pg 17  bullet point 1 and 3.


Research the Salinas Valley and in full sentences explain what you have discovered about this place.  Remember, you want to try as much as possible to focus on what it may have been like in the 1920s rather than now.  Then research the geography of the area (specifically Soledad) and try to create a map with key features on it that we can add to as we read the book. This should be done in your ex. book under the title ‘Of Mice and Men’.  If you do it on the computer, please print it out and stick it in to your book.
