Read the Book: It Could Still Be a Flower by Allan Fowler.


Count how many indoor plants you have inside your house. Next, count how many different plants you have outside in your yard. Then, add how many plants you have altogether. Challenge: Can you figure out how many more plants you have outside than inside? Draw a picture to show your math.


Listen to this read-aloud, Eating the Alphabet by Lois Elhert, on Learning Tree T.V.

Print this booklet (or make your own) to draw pictures and write the names of things we eat that come from plants. 

Parts of plants

People Eat Plants. Eating plants helps us stay healthy. Together with a grown-up,  search your kitchen for edible plants. Look for different parts of plants. For example: carrots or onions for roots; broccoli tops for flowers; lettuce for leaves; beans or peas for seeds; celery for stems; and bananas for fruit. Then pick out some plant parts to share as a snack!
