- Describe what a gardener does.
- Name three different types of gardens and tell what grows in each.
- Find at least two places in the Bible where a garden is mentioned.

- Take care of a small plot of land-sowing, transplanting, planting and cultivating flowers or vegetables.
- Plant and care for three different plants using a window box, flower pot, milk carton, or can.
- Make a terrarium and care for it.
- A gardener cultivates the soil, plants seeds and sets plants, and feeds, waters, weeds, transplants, and cares for the garden.
- Vegetable garden: foods such as peas, carrots, beans, etc.
- Flower Garden: bulb and seed flowers, such as tulips or pansies.
