It Grows On Trees!
We have been talking a lot about things that grow on trees. We set out fruit, a type of nut and pictures of the trees they came from. We wondered if the children could match them with the trees. We extended this activity by having the seeds of the fruit available giving the children the opportunity to match the seeds to their fruit.
After matching the seeds, we used the opportunity to count them and discuss the similarities and differences between them. Some noticed that all the seeds were a different size, color and shape. So many teachable moments came from such a simple matching activity!
