Crop Multiplication -- Out Teach


Call students to gather in a seating area with a loud call signal.

Have students share examples of their garden bed layouts.

Draw a rectangular grid example on the board and begin asking questions about the numbers of vegetables planted. For example: if you draw the table above, you could ask how many carrots could I plant in 2 square feet? What about 12 square feet?

Reverse the order of the questions by giving students the area of a space and asking how much of a specific vegetable could be planted.
