Earlier this week, you should have constructed a math garden on graph paper and then determined the area by estimating each square.
For more information on area estimation, click here.
Note: you may use the existing garden that you already made OR create a new one. It may be on a half or full sheet. Click here for graph paper if needed.
Now you will fill in your garden with the following items. You will determine the sizes.
1. 4 Garden Beds
2. 2 Rock Gardens
3. 1 Water Fountain (must be circular or oval-shaped)
4. 2 other items of your choice
5. Optional: decorate or color your garden
You must find the area of the garden and each item placed in it. Each square on the grid is 1 square foot. List them in this way:
Garden area: Rock garden 1:
Garden bed 1: Rock garden 2:
Garden bed 2: Fountain:
Garden bed 3: Choice item 1:
Garden bed 4: Choice item 2:
