Vegetable Garden

Summer is almost here and so are the delicious vegetables from a summer garden! Engage students with some fun literacy activities around vegetable gardens as the school year comes to a close. 

Do taste tests in your classroom! 

Then compare and contrast the vegetables! 

Use a local supermarket flyer to have students look up vegetable prices! 

When I was in college I heard a story of a kinder teacher who looped with his students to first grade. During the summer break between kindergarten and first grade, he gave each student a packet of tomato seeds to plant at home. Then, when the next school year started the students brought in the vegetables they grew. The class made spaghetti sauce in a crock pot and the students served it to their parents during Back-to-School Night.
