Example: Die Gelbe Ruebe- the carrot

Watch the carrot seed grow


   

We put a few rocks on the bottom of the big
glass bowl for drainage

We added the planting sod and worms (that we collected on a walk in the park) in the bowl.

The seeds we put on the inside against the glass so we can now start watching them grow.

A growth chart is on the wall so we can chart the growth of the carrot seed.
A ruler will help us with that.

Magnifying glasses will allow us to watch and observe the worms throughout the day.

What a great activity for a healthy snack for the next day!

Children get to measure the ingredients, mix and pour the batter. Use their gross and fine motor skills to get that job done.

It also teaches the children to follow the steps of the recipe, numbers, and turn taking with the other children.




Teaching healthy eating habits is a very important aspect in our fast food society in early childhood.
