    1. Horticulture Semester Two – 2011-12

    2. Horticulture 1/30/12Week of 1/30 to 2/3 • Entry Task – Monday • If you could pick one small area to maintain in the landscaping around the school(s), where would it be and why? Explain why you like that spot and how you would maintain it! • Draft map of Rain garden area – if raining we will stand under awning with our clipboards and a couple people can measure distances. • Please put on coats, hats and have one clipboard with graph paper per two people.

    3. Horticulture 1/31/12 • Entry Task – Tuesday • Free 2 points! • Head outside to finish draft rain garden site maps.

    4. Horticulture 2/1/12 • Entry Task – Wednesday • Watch the Rain Garden Video. Summarize the characteristics of the 3 different zones of a rain garden (center, lower middle ring, upper outer ring/berm). • Retrieve maps and clipboards.

    5. Today’s Work • Use rulers to make maps more accurate. • Check your map against someone else’s for accuracy (layer them and see if everything lines up). • Someone may need to head outside and measure again. • Layer a blank piece of graph paper and create an accurate 2nd draft with pen or dark pencil and a ruler. • How big should our rain garden be? • Go to Google Earth to get a view of the school roof. • How much of the roof do you think is actually draining into the downspout by the district office? • We will measure and calculate that area. • What percent of area should garden be? Check handbook. • Sketch in garden – count squares for area.

    6. Horticulture 2/2/12 • Entry Task – Thursday • If a roof is 30 feet by 20 feet, what is its area? • Show your work. Don’t forget units! • If the rain garden area can be 10% of that area, how big can it be? • How many square feet is each square???

    7. Today’s Work • How big should our rain garden be? • Go to Google Earth to get a view of the school roof. • How much of the roof do you think is actually draining into the downspout by the district office? • We will measure and calculate that area. • What percent of area should garden be?
