As a part of Independent Living, you can discuss having a garden in your home. Find a local garden store (such as Home Depot, Walmart, a specialty Garden Store, etc.) and have the students search for different items in small groups or independently. They will be looking for things such as: store cross streets, types of roses, garden accessories, finding an item they would buy for a friend/family member and more. Helps facilitate social skills, communicating with store associates to complete the worksheet.
