Did you know that we eat parts of plants every day?
We call the parts of plants that we eat fruit or vegetables. They are often grown by farmers, but some people grow their own food in their gardens. Have you ever tried this?
It's helpful to know the names of different fruits and vegetables, as well as where they have come from.
We can also look at the similarities and differences between plants which grow food to help us understand them.
For example, what is different between how apples and carrots grow?
Well, apples grow on trees and carrots grow in the ground!
We can use similarities to group plants and foods too. For example - what could we add to a group called 'green vegetables'?
How about, broccoli, peas and green beans?! We couldn't add carrots as they are orange!!
Let's see if we can find a few more similarities and differences between plants!
