Fruits and Vegetables
How We Grow and Eat Them
From the Series Get Started with STEM
Crunch! Munch! Delicious! We eat fruits and vegetables every day, but how do these foods actually grow? In this book, kids will discover how seeds develop into mature plants from which farmers or gardeners can harvest a crop.
Many children are not aware of how the foods they eat are produced, so this eye-opening book will have them looking at produce as plant scientists. They will also learn how fruits and vegetables are good for our bodies and help to keep us healthy.
The book includes critical thinking questions, activities and experiments, and it is supported with downloadable worksheets.
