Growing in a Triangle

Middle schoolers explore the Pythagorean theorem, and analyze characteristics of two- and three-dimensional shapes. They use this knowledge to create a scale drawing of a plan to construct a triangular raised bed garden for an outdoor classroom. Each group presents their particular plan to the entire class. Terrific worksheets, rubrics, and website links are all embedded in the plan to help you implement it successfully.
