One of our parents brought in some seeds today for us to plant this spring! Our goal this summer is to harvest our gardens once a week for snack. A big thank you to Faye!!
The children began to sort through them. They held up each package to show their friends and teachers calling out the items that they found.
"Look I found some carrots".
We discussed all the different things we can make with the seeds:
Carrots: soup, muffins, cake
Corn: "eat the corn, hold on the sides and eat the seeds off the top".
As the children were sorting though the seeds the children starting finding matching packages of seeds. They held up the matches in the air "look the same".
Then another child picked up the package of cantaloupe seeds, she went to the other room when she came back she had a piece of cantaloupe from the house keeping area "look this is what these seeds will make". This child is showing assimilation between a tiny seed and the actual fruit.
