Mary Rowland's


Mary Rowland travelled all over the world. Read her diary entry, and see if you can list all of the countries she visited. It looks to me like she visited at least four continents.

* Sierra Leone, in Africa, where she picked up dry hides and peanuts.

* The United States, in North America, where she got flour, cotton, and lumber.

* Spain, in Europe, where she picked up wine, almonds, figs, lemons, and raisins.

* Brazil, in South America, where she got coffee.

Choose one of the places that she visited and create a travel flyer for it. You can get photos, maps, flags, and information off the web at the sites listed below. Write the flyer as if you were Mary Rowland, and describe what you find there.
