We introduced plants and plants we eat during our study of pumpkins. Here are some more of the activities we have been doing to explore the concept of edible plant parts.

Let’s Chop Them Up!
Chop! Chop! Chop!
Vegetable Soup, of course!
We also had fruit salad for snack and graphed which fruits were our favorite. Strawberries!
