Would You Rather? Garden Chores

Would you rather…

Weed the green bean and tomato sections? Or water the carrots, squash, and peas?
The garden is a rectangular plot with carrots, peas and green beans across the top, tomatoes and square across the bottom. All of the spaces are different sizes. Carrots: 4 feet by 3 feet. Peas: 4 feet by 7 feet. Green beans: 4 feet by 5 feet. Tomatoes: 3 feet by an unknown length. Squash: 3 feet by 7 feet.

Use pictures, models, words, numbers or symbols to justify your choice.

Why might someone choose to do the other garden chore?


Ask a friend or family member to choose between the two options. Did they make the same choice that you did? Why did they make their choice?
