Identifying Fruits and Vegetables

Purpose: With our many activities containing food items, we are expending on the theme of healthy eating habits and incorporating the definitions of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are in our every day vocabulary and children need to understand their meaning. This will encourage children to leam and figure out if they are eating a fruit or a vegetable. They can then discover on their own new fruits and vegetables to try at home or at school. Ages: 3-5 English & Spanish Book for possible reference "Laughing Tomatoes" by Francisco X. Alarcon
