First we talked about what each plant is and what PART of the plant it is that we eat. Then I let them choose from an asparagus or celery STEM, we had carrots for ROOTS, broccoli for FLOWERS, sunflower seeds for SEEDS, several leaves from the salad assortment for LEAVES, and their choice of grapes, strawberries, or bananas for FRUIT. They went to town making their little plant creations. Once they finished I gave them labels to lay on their paper to show what the parts are. After I got some pictures I let them eat any of it that they wanted. I couldn't believe how much they ate!
Oh, one more thing. We also did this little color/cut/paste activity from Lita Lita. It was really cute and they enjoyed slowing down and doing some coloring after all the excitement died down! Wonderful day!
