Our learning garden grade 3 unit 2 lesson 1 4 going green with green lentils
Our Learning Garden - Grade 3-Unit 2 Lesson 1-4 Going Green with Green Lentils

  • Lesson Summary- This unit connects children to seeds (green lentils) as they learn about germinating, harvesting, preparing and sharing food. Students explore the anatomy and physiology of seeds in a dynamic PowerPoint presentation that includes many hands on activities. We explore where green lentils are grown and do mapping exercises.

  • Students use required Math skills in the farmer activity- calculating out how many seeds to plant based on germination. The unit culminates with the class creating “The Great Lentil Recipe Book”

  • Our goal is to meet many curriculum outcomes as we introduce the students to a Green Lentils (SUPER FOOD) that is incredibly nutritious

  • All lesson plans and related files for download - ourlearninggarden.ca

The files are open so feel to change content to class requirements.

  • Seeds are called dormant when they are not growing. Dormant is like sleeping, the seed uses very little energy when it is dormant.

When the seeds wakes up it germinates. Germination is when a seed starts to grow.

Is the food for the plant

A seed has its own food supply that it uses called the endosperm

ourlearninggarden.ca


  • When the seed germinates or sprouts the food supply changes so that it is healthier for us to eat

  • The endosperm (food supply) is largest part of the seed

  • The seed uses this food to help it grow when it is very small

Safe sprouting practices
Safe Sprouting Practices

  • Soaking: Turning a dormant seed into a nutritional powerhouse. Soak in water 6-10 hours. Remove and drain

  • Draining: It is essential that sprouts be drained thoroughly after rinsing. Use a strainer.

  • Rinsing: Try to rinse 2 or 3 times a day.

  • Air Circulation: If your sprouts can’t breathe while growing they can die. Don’t put them in a closed container.

  • 48 hours or less your sprouts will be ready to eat

  • Cleanliness: Your seed should be clean and your sprouting device should be clean.. Storage: Properly stored, fresh sprouts will keep for up to 1 weeks in your refrigerator but fresher is better. Never refrigerate wet sprouts.
