Plant Parts You Eat
What Plants Do You Eat?
Begin the activity by asking, Did you know that humans eat many different parts of plants? Lead a class discussion about the different parts of plants, such as seeds, leaves, stems, roots, and flowers. Follow by having students think of all the plant-based foods they have eaten (or will eat) that day.
Ask, Does oatmeal come from plants? What about apple juice? What other foods come from plants? Examples might include bread from wheat; cereals from oats, wheat and corn; and juice from oranges and apples. Ask, Did you know that we eat many different parts of plants?
