Meet the Plant Parts
The purpose of this lesson is for students to understand that we eat different parts of different plants: roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds. Students will search for each of these plant parts in the school garden. They will sort fruits and vegetables by which part of that plant we harvest to eat, and work on observational drawings of edible flowers, such as broccoli and cauliflower.
Plants have recognizable parts.
- How can you recognize different plant parts?
