Fruits or Vegetables at Variety Boys & Girls Club

When we learn plant parts, the definition of the fruit is always a source of confusion. Last week we dove into all the different plant parts that we eat and which of our “vegetables” are also fruit. We then explored the garden for different plant parts we could use for a snack. We found enough to eat them all: a flower (broccoli), fruit (lemon), seed (peas) and stem/leaves (lettuce).
