Plant Parts!

During this class the students learned about the different parts of the plant.  We focused on what the word edible means and went over which parts of the plants students could eat.  They learned that some vegetables are roots, some are flowers, some are stems, and some are leaves.  They also learned that you can eat the seeds of certain plants and the fruit of others.  The students split up into groups and went on a garden hunt for the different types of plants we learned about in the lesson.  At the end of class we tasted some delicious sunflower seeds from one of our giant sunflowers growing in the garden!
