Story and Language:
Fruits and Vegetables Introduction
Read the book Gregory the Terrible Eater by Mitchell Sharmat. This is a hilarious book about Gregory, who wants to eat fruits and vegetables, and his parents, who are more excited about tin cans and tires.

Surprise Bag:
Place one or two different fruits or vegetables into a small brown lunch bag. Give each child a bag. Have children take turns reaching into their bag without looking inside and describe how the fruit or vegetable feels (soft, hard, rough, smooth, round, etc.). Encourage them first to guess what it is, and then take it from the bag to reveal what it is.

Movement:
Think of a fruit or vegetable and say," It's an orange. Mmm . . . a yummy orange." (Have children rub their bellies.) "An orange grows high up in a tree." (Have children reach up to pretend to pick an orange from a tree.) Repeat with different actions for the other fruits and vegetables in the bags. (Carrots--bend down and pull carrots, etc.).

Help children answer these questions about their fruits and vegetables, one at a time:
What does it look like? (Like a tree, a ball, a leaf)
Is this fruit/vegetable big or little?
How does it feel? (Smooth, rough, hard, soft, bumpy, cold, warm, crinkly)
What color is it?

Other questions to ask:
Do you know an animal that eats (name the fruit or vegetable)?
Where do you get the (name the fruit or vegetable) you eat at your house?
Does anyone at your house cook (name the fruit or vegetable)?
What is your favorite fruit?
What is your favorite vegetable?

Cut up the fruits and vegetables that you have and let children taste them. Make sure that children wash their hands before they eat.

Ask the questions:
What does the vegetable taste like? (Sweet, sour, salty)
What does it feel like in your mouth? (Juicy, crisp, hard)

Talk about how eating fruits and vegetables helps us grow and stay healthy.

Field Trip
Visit a local farmers market. Let children buy some items. Later, have them wash and try the fruits and vegetables.

are good for you.
They keep you healthy
and are yummy too! (Rub bellies)

Place a little of yellow and red paint on a paper plate and have children stir and mix the colors until they get an orange color. Cut a real carrot to get a round carrot stamp. Use carrot to stamp the orange color on the carrot outline. Let dry. Draw carrot leaf and attach a pipe cleaner with staples.
