Product Description
Lesson Description: In this lesson students plan a garden and experience a scarcity of space. If you don’t have a garden area you may choose to set your space as a beach towel. Students want to grow a lot of food items for their garden but must make decisions as space is scarce. Students will take the seed packages and measure the amount of space each plant will take.
Students may use enlarged photos of plants to place on the beach towel to help them make their final decisions. Student learning is assessed by questions and a class discussion.

Concepts:Economics: Scarcity, Opportunity CostsMathematics: Nonstandard Measurement, Area, Perimeter

Student Objectives:
The students will:
 Recognize that scarcity of space forces you to make decisions.
 Recognize that the items that are given up are their opportunity cost
 Recognize the opportunity cost of a choice is the value of the best forgone
alternative.
 Use a PACED decision making process to determine what to put in their garden.
