Soup for Science
What part of a plant are you eating when you enjoy a tasty carrot? Second grade students are studying botany and learning about plant identification. They are being introduced to the parts of plants and the functions of those parts. Vegetables were the key for a reading, math, health, and fabulous science lesson on the Parts of the Plant We Eat. They had a lot of fun preparing vegetables for soup and considering where each one grew on the plant. The vegetable soup they cooked was a tasty reminder of the gifts God provides and an exciting science lesson.
