Some of the students in Room 5 started talking at breakfast time one day about different kinds of fruits. Then it got brought up again during playtime in the kitchen later...
"I think this is an orange"
"This is strawberry"
"No that rasberry"
Because of their interest in fruits a grapefruit, tangerine, blood orange and regular orange were purchased and brought into the classroom. First we cut up the fruits and noticed how inside all the fruits looked a little different even though the outsides looked a lot alike. We used our sense of touch and smell with the fruits. Then we decided to use the fruits to paint! We loved watching how the fruits stamped on our papers!
