This activity is a perfect way to review before the end of the year and get kids excited for spring and summer! This is a math project based learning activity. It can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on how far you take it!
This resource covers:
- Persuasive writing
- Persuasive speaking
- Nets of shapes
- Area and Perimeter
- Rate and Ratio
- Health and Wellness (benefits of gardening)
- Community involvement
This is a great way to tie in a school garden or get kids involved in the outdoors. It's also a terrific way to address stress and anxiety concerns in both kids and adults. The unit is project based which means it does not come with answers (although several rubrics and checklists). The unit is designed to meet kids where they are at with their knowledge and build on it. I always do project based learning as a finale to my teaching. Kids are engaged and excited and usually I pull in some sort of community piece to my learning (like donating food from the garden to a food bank). It really makes kids thrilled to be part of something bigger.
