Roots: Carrots, Beets, Radish
Seeds: Corn, Beans
Leaves: Lettuce, Arugula and Kale, Beets

The children wrote in their journals, e.g. " We eat the roots of carrot, beets and radish" and then drew (illustrated) a picture of a vegetable.
The children then ate a salad with the veggies of their choice with a choice of dressing (lemon juice, olive oil or ranch).
At recess today about 10 of the children returned to help in the garden and signed the "volunteer" list! They weeded, planted lettuce seeds and watered.
