Students observe, dissect, journal, discuss, and taste their way through the world of plants in this investigative science curriculum.  Each lesson begins with opportunities for students to taste different edible plant parts sparking curiosity, interesting questions and social dialogue. Following the tasting, additional activities use an inquiry approach to engage children to act like botanists by observing and collecting data, discussing findings, and reflecting on what they learn as they study edible roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds.
