George Washington Carver Museum is hosting Black History Month Kid’s Day on Saturday, March 27th, 2021. They will be hosting the event live via Zoom sessions with special guests and activities. This year’s theme is the Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity. You can RSVP for the event here.

MathHappens interns, Viyang Shah and Anh Nguyen, worked together to create an activity highlighting Carver’s work in Agriculture. This activity guides you through the planning process for planting a well-nourished vegetable garden, as well as how to calculate percent yield and approximate values per crop.

You can print the activity from this link and cut out the images on the last page for your vegetable garden planning. For more fun, print the last page on sticker paper and cut them out to make your own stickers!

Find the Cookie Video, The Cookie Recipe, and The Gardening Activity here.
