Lesson 1: Students will learn and understand the properties of common tools/objects found in a garden. Students will be able to learn about edible and non edible plants, as well as being able to distinguish the two.

Lesson 2: Students will learn about the chemistry behind the different functions of plants and their structure, by understanding the natural process that they undergo with the environment.

Lesson 3: Students will dive into the different uses of plants and what other purposes, aside from providing oxygen and food, they serve in biodiversity.
