On Thursday February 16th, we learned about parts of the plant, which parts we typically eat from a plant, and which parts we don’t. For example, a tomato, we enjoy the fruit, but don’t eat the leaves because they could make us sick. With our returning 2nd grade class, I decided to do a quick review with them, glad I did because they couldn’t recall some parts of the plants. I used real examples to talk about the parts of a plant, a beet for a ROOT, celery for STEM, swiss chard for the LEAF, broccoli for a FLOWER, beans for the SEEDS, and an orange for the FRUIT. Then we teamed up in groups, to play Pictionary! Groups had chance to do their own drawing on a whiteboard of a fruit or veggie we hadn’t mentioned yet. Each group drew a picture, and all groups had the chance to guess what it was, then once guessed right, each group got a chance to guess which part of the plant we eat. Not all groups had a chance to go, so we will finish up the following week. With our Special ED class, I used the real examples, explained the parts as they either touched, looked or smelled. All classes ended with a taste of celery, a stem, carrot, a root, and hummus, a seed.
