This resource reviews the critical 3rd grade math skills of multiplication, division, area, and perimeter as your students work through a fun activity planning, harvesting and selling the vegetables in their custom garden. This project would be appropriate for any students needing a review of multiplication and division with products to 100, along with area and perimeter of rectangles. This resource is ideal for distance learning.

Your students will find the most success as each step of the activity is briefly modeled and then students are allowed to work independently to make their own choices about their garden. The practice of multiplication, division, area, and perimeter are made fun as your students work to create a garden.

You can differentiate the activity and add a challenge by asking students to meet specific criteria. Can you make a very small garden? What about a very large garden? Who can create a garden that earns the most money at the farmer's market?

Included in the activity you will find:

⭐ Step 1: Choosing Plants- Students will choose their plants from a catalog and will determine the number of each plant they choose to plant. Students will also calculate the cost of their plants.

⭐ Step 2: Planning Garden Plots- Students will create rectangular area models to accommodate each of the 5 plants they selected.

⭐ Step 3: Protect The Plants- Students will determine the perimeter of each of their 5 garden plots so that they are able to protect their plants with a fence.

⭐ Step 4: Harvest- Students will harvest their vegetables and divide them into baskets to prepare for the farmer's market.

⭐ Step 5: To the Market- Students will sell their baskets of vegetables and calculate the amount of money they will earn from their garden.

This activity can be completed entirely online, however, a 1-page recording form has been included for ease of grading should you need that option.

Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
