A math project for students to design a public garden for their city

Use this activity as a culminating project at the end of your perimeter and area unit.

Students have the task of developing a design plan for a public garden for their city. They will select plants and features to include in their garden, plan the layout, determine the total cost of the design, and create a cross section of their favorite part. Then, they will write an explanation of why the city should choose their design over the others.

This is a great activity to use in a math center or as a math investigation.
