What’s in our garden and how does it grow?
Goal: To learn how fruits and vegetables grow and are categorized
Objectives: The kids will be able to:
• Identify the basic needs of a plant
• Identify the parts of a plant- root, stem, leaf, and flower
• Create simple tables and graphs and interpret them
Before the lesson: Gather fruits and vegetables to serve as examples
Guide and Materials:
• Guide: Fact sheet
• Materials: fruits & vegetable examples,
pencils & paper
In order for children to understand where their food comes from, it is important that they understand the how things grow. The children need hands on experience in the garden to better understand that plants are alive and can vary in shape, colour, and in how they grow. Finally, the children will be able to better determine whether
something is a fruit or a vegetable.
1. Plant Categories:
Have the children draw their own chart (or 1 large class chart) to
organize fruits and vegetables into the parts of the plant that they represent:

Which part allows the plant to absorb water and other nutrients?
Which part allows the plant to continue on to make more plants?
Which plant part do you think you eat the most? The least?
