Valley View Elementary Learns Plant Parts and Their Functions

Valley View Elementary had a lesson on plant parts and their functions. A snack made of seeds, fruits, and leaves (corn, tomatoes, and basil) helped the students realize how delicious the parts can be in the right combination. Some primary consumers were spotted and made a great precursor to future lessons.
