Measuring in the Garden
The purpose of this lesson is for students to practice measuring skills in the garden. Students will estimate the length of the garden beds and use standard and non-standard units of measurement to compare the sizes of different garden beds. Students will then partition beds into square feet to prepare beds for spring planting.
Measuring is important as we plan our spring garden.
- Why is it important to plan a garden before starting to plant?
