Project Based Learning: The Economics of Gardening
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.
