Your students’ task is to develop their own plan for a garden.
Your students could plan a vegetable garden, a flower garden or maybe even a bonsai garden. The design and contents of their garden is completely up to them!
To begin, your class will need to select the types of plants and features (like rocks, paths and water) in the garden. Next, they will need to plan the layout.
As the students work on their garden, they can make sure they have completed all of the tasks required by using the Garden Plan Checklist.
This activity is great for basic mathematics, design and creative thinking.
