In this science class, the students read a book called “A Suitcase for Seeds.” The students were asked to make predictions about what they thought the seeds would look like, where they were located and how many there were. The students then got to analyze different fruits. We predicted what the inside of every fruit would look like and we drew pictures on the board. After the students were done predicting, we cut open the fruit to see what was inside. If the predictions were wrong, the students would correct them and draw what the fruit actually looked like on the inside. At the end of the lesson all of the students were able to tell me two specific differences they saw within the different fruits that we cut open as a class. Then we had fun making a delicious fruit salad.
The following week we cut open more fruit and made a fruit salad to share with the school.
