Mara, Common Threads Farm Garden Educator visited us today for our first nutrition class!
Today's lesson was focused on identifying and labeling plant parts, naming the parts of different plants we eat, preparing a special vegetable "burrito," and using observations to describe foods we eat rather than sharing our opinions about taste.
What are fruits we eat?
What are flowers we eat?
Yum! Shredded apples and beets, chard stems, kale or lettuce leaves and...sunflower seed butter! They were (mostly) a hit.
Thank you Common Threads Farm for choosing us to be one of the schools you work with. We really value the service you provide our children and our community.
What is something you learned today about plant parts or eating plants?
What are your favorite plant parts to eat?
What are kinds of flowers, seeds, roots, stems, leaves we eat?
What observations can you make about food textures and tastes (instead of saying "I like that food" or "That's gross!")?
