Flowers and Fruits

Today in class we played with our food! We looked at fresh plant foods to see if we could identify what part of the plant they actually came from. We examined edible plants that are the roots (carrot), stems (celery), leaves (spinach) and fruits (apple, tomato, pepper or cucumber) of a plant. Did you know that fruits began their development as the flowers of the plant?

Look around your own kitchen and see if you can identify which plant parts these foods would come from: sweet potato, corn, garlic, raspberry, asparagus and rhubarb!
