Today Ms. Connor's 2nd graders reviewed parts of a plant- roots, stem, leaves, flowers, seeds and fruit. They then matched the part of a plant to selected vegetables and herbs after identifying them.
Leaves: arugula, lettuce, beet, basil,cilantro, kale
Stem: broccoli, green onion, beet celery, asparagus
Fruit: tomato, cucumber
Seeds: corn, peas
Roots: onion, beet potato (really a tuber)
They also wrote in their journals before having a snack of carrots.
