How Do Area And Perimeter Help In Planting A Garden? In this project, students will learn how to find area and perimeter by working with a partner to plant a garden of their very own. This project will help students master the formulas for area and perimeter, differentiate between the two, and practice using them in everyday life. This project is designed to have a structure compatible with implementing PBL in the classroom. NextLesson projects include certain key components that facilitate an authentic PBL experience. There are videos, handouts, answer keys, a reflection, and a rubric included in this project.
