Instructional Ideas

  • After finishing the lesson, head back to the classroom to gather your data into a writing piece, like a collective class poem
  • For advanced learners, ask them to be more specific in what they are identifying (i.e. what type of creatures or flowers)
Classroom Considerations

  • If your school does not have access to a garden, consider a field trip to a local garden or park
  • It will be very important early on to remind students that they should not eat anything alone, and that you will try things as a group. Extra adult support would be beneficial
Pros

  • Hands-on, experiential learning
  • Includes five senses worksheet for chronicling information
Cons

  • None
