Measurement Pattern Data Analysis Tips for Gardening with Children Geometree Numbers and Operations (explore length using a
nonstandard unit of measure

(compare a range of sizes, shapes,
and densities of fruits & veggies
4.MD1) Math

in the

Garden (explore the advantages of data
sampling 1.G4)

(collect, record, interpret data 6.EE5) Algebra How many seeds in an apple?
(estimation & counting skills

Planting Sequence
(ordinal numbers
K.CC4) (number sense, tally, one-to-one
correspondence K.CC4)

(analyze and compare the two types
of measurements with leaves 3.MD7/8) Everything Counts in the Garden Area & Perimeter of Leaves Hand Spans Weighing the Garden Harvest Symmetree (explore bilateral symmetry
and asymmetry in nature

(introduce radius, diameter
and circumference of
circular gardens 2.G 1) Planting in Circles Drawing Tree Observations (estimating proportions,
identifying shapes & patterns

(explore acute and obtuse angles
on plants 4.MD5) Angle Search Plant Predators Bud, Flower, Fruit Data by Cindy Neuschwander Plant a Flower Garden: Sequence

First #1: Size and Location
Second #2: Learn about Soil
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
of 19.25
inches Examples of Symmetrical
& 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
