Ask your child if they know the names of any plants? If you have any plants in your home or in your garden show them to your child. Can they name the features of these plants? Can they point to where the roots are? Can they point to the stem, petals and the flower?
Show your child the Fruit and Vegetable Information cards below. Ask them to think about a time when they have eaten either or these fruits or vegetables. Did they like them? How did they taste? What words can they think of to describe how they look and taste? Ask your child to think about talk about the similarities and differences between these fruits and vegetables. Where are they grown? Which country do they come from?
Challenge: Using the ‘How to Grow a Plant’ posters below, encourage your child to sequence them in the correct order.
