Third #3: Climate and Plant's names
Fourth #4: Choose plants and seeds
Fifth #5: Planting Flowers and seeds
Sixth #6: Watering, Weeding, mulching
Seventh #7: Fertilize and Compost Questions about area and perimeter:
What is your hypothesis about which leaf has
a greater perimeter? Why?
What referent did you choose to measure area
and why? Was the lego the right choice? 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Geometree
- Discuss inches and miles as standard measurement. Hand spans are non-standard measurement. Estimate how many hand spans Miles would be. -Follow by entering the class garden and measuring vegetables or plant growth in hand spans. Radius of our own circle __________________ radius

& Assymetrical objects in
Nature 1. Cut a 1"x2" piece of plastic tape.
2. Lay two craft sticks, end to end, along the center of the length of tape, leaving a 1/8-inch gap between the sticks (so they may be twisted in a later step).
3. Wrap tape tightly around sticks, preserving the gap.
4. Use a permanent marking pen to color the top side of the sticks. The coloring makes the angles easier to see.
5. Holding one stick flat on a firm surface, twist the other stick 180 degrees so the colored side is face down.
6. Fold one stick 180 degree over on top of the other. How
