Teacher's Guide

My Garden Spot

  • Students will observe and make decisions about a garden based on the conditions needed to create a successful garden.

  • Students will be able to make observations of the environment, and chart the location of the sun as it moves across the sky.

  • Students will learn a different kind of charting through direct observation and recording.

This part of the website helps students understand the importance of location. By determining the location and intensity of the sun, decisions about the kinds of plants that can grow are made.
