Students will be able to name and use different garden tools, know that tools are useful for different tasks, and know how to take care of tools.
How can tools help us in the garden?
Variety of garden tools
What is a tool?
Show different garden tools and demonstrate how each one is used and what each one is named. What should you do before using a tool in the garden?
Have students sort tools. How many of each tool do we have?
Go outside and demonstrate how each tool is used in the garden. Then divide
students into teams, giving each student one tool, and let them work in the garden (5P10 minutes). Show students where to return tools.
Wrap up/ Assessment:
How was your tool useful in the garden? What do we do with garden tools when we are done with them?
FOLLOW UP & EXTENSIONS
Use tools in different seasons and for different tasks in the garden. Before using tools, always ask students to name the tool and explain how to use it.
