Invite students to serve up some vegetables with imaginative poetry.
As a whole group, ask students to generate a list of vegetables. Chart how many children have tasted each one. Discuss how different types of vegetables grow (roots, leaves, fruits, flowers, tubers) and why these foods are essential for health. Feel the surface textures and colors of several samples such as squash, eggplant, and broccoli. During the discussion, listen for descriptive words (hot, crunchy, smelly, squishy, prickly).
Students cover a table with recycled newspapers. On construction paper, student paint a large vegetable with Crayola® Washable Paints and Brushes. Mix colors to make it as realistic as possible. Dry overnight.
Invite students to add details with a Crayola Washable Marker. Show texture and layering, such at the little roots and rings around a carrot, or the layers of an onion's skin. Encourage students to use their imaginations to bring out vegetable's personality with eyes, nose, and mouth. Cut out your vegetable with Crayola Scissors.
Jot down descriptive words about your vegetable's personality, including adjectives from the class discussion.
