2nd Quarter PBL in Math
To launch our project in math, my class started by going out and looking at the school made gardens and taking measurement of the dimensions of all of the planters.
We then recorded all of the measurements in the green packets. With the green packets when explored how to find the cost of various planters, different plants, and all the materials to plant a garden. To do this, we had to find the unit price of wood, seeds, dirt, and nails.
During this, I discovered that the amount of money it takes to grow food in planter is much different that what I thought it would be. If we bring this knowledge to people who need it around the world then they can use the info to properly grow food in their area.
For this project, I will use the example of Giza Governorate, Egypt
Current Meals in Giza Governorate, Egypt
Tepary Beans can be planted the Spring in order to have a late Summer harvest.
The peas would be planted with the Tepary beans (in Spring) to get a plentiful Summer harvest.
While the peas and Tepary beans is beginning to harvest you can begin growing your corn in the Summer.
Then, around December, you can begin to plant your carrots to begin your harvest in late Winter. By then you can begin to grow your Tepary beans and Peas.
