Studying Plants and Having Fun!

Our Strawberry plants have yielded their first harvest and as we went out to pick them, I knew there was a lesson in here somewhere! I wanted the kids to be able to pick their own fruits and veggies without pulling out the whole plant!

I found this fantastic worksheet online and printed it out, so that the kids would have something visual to work with. We studied a bit inside before taking out rules and scissors outside. As we were studying, the kids were so excited to learn parts, but more excited to get out and eat those berries! They were so careful outside, even the youngest (3years) said 'careful for root!'

What have you done outdoors lately?
