Eaton is at age where we can have little chat in the kitchen about what we are eating or cooking. Recent topic is "seeds".
Eaton loves papayas and avocados where seeds are very visible. When I cut the fruit in half I ask Eaton some questions.
What is inside of avocado? Or
Where are all the seeds?
What is it?-pointing to a seed
I talk about how we grow trees from seeds or I show him how the avocado seed sprouts.
It's really interesting topic for kids.
When we do matching fruit activity I point that most of the seeds are inside the fruit but some like strawberries have seeds outside on the skin.
I love that file folder game because pictures are so beautifully made and of course they are real.
I added words underneath pictures to reinforce the vocabulary of fruits.
