Topic Exploring seeds
This week we are looking how we can grow potatoes or plant apple seeds. Collect some different fruit and vegetables you can find in your fruit bowl or in the fridge. With some help, cut some fruit in half and find out what is hiding inside. What fruit or vegetables can you find that have seeds? Use a magnifying glass to explore the seeds. Here are some examples that you may want to look at: apples, pears, tomatoes, peppers, peaches and cucumber. Not all fruit have seeds inside, can you find fruit that have seeds on the outside?
Look for seeds
Observe seeds before removing them from the food.
Draw a simple graph on paper
Place seeds on the graph to find out which food has the most seeds and which has the least. An example is below.
Sorting fruit. Seeds inside and seeds outside.
Ask the children, how can we sort the fruit? Place the fruit cut in half with the seeds showing inside on a tray and the fruit with seeds on the outside on another tray. Can you count how many fruit is on each tray? Can you write the number or find a number card to the same total number?
Potato shape printing
You can carve the potatoes into any shape that you’d like, paint the shapes and then use them to make a picture.
Would you like to make a rainbow fruit salad a fruit kebab or even a fruit smoothie? What fruit would you like to chop, peel and eat? Write a list, draw or you can find the beginning sound for each fruit, using letters of the ingredients.
Would you like to make your own book called 'My Apple Book'? Stick and sequence the picture cards in order on separate pages. The book can be a shape of an apple.
Label different parts of inside an apple. You can use the activity sheet.
Have some fun apple printing. Listen to the story to find out the colour of apples. What is the beginning sound of apple?
