The Bring Your Favorite Vegetable to School Party
Every year after learning about plants and what they need to grow (air, sun, water, soil), we have a bring your favorite vegetable to school party to show off all that we know about plants. We also do this as a chance to try new things (brussel sprouts). This year we ate roots (carrots and potatoes), stems (celery and asparagus), leaves (brussel sprouts), flowers (broccoli and cauliflower), seeds (corn and green beans) and the fruit of plants (spaghetti squash and zucchini). Everyone did a great job preparing their veggies (we had breads, soups, casseroles, dips, cookies, cakes, chips, breads, etc.) It was a great time AND 37 out of 40 kindergarteners tried a brussel sprout. They were so brave!
