Searching for roots that we eat at Clifford

This week students at Clifford Elementary learned about the parts of the plants that we eat! Students were surprised to learn that broccoli was a flower and celery was a stem! During the lesson we pulled out carrots, which are roots, and they got to enjoy them!
