This activity provides an opportunity to discuss vegetables in detail.  Which do children like/dislike?  Can they identify them? The activity will benefit from research about the vegetables chosen by the children.

You might like to visit a farm which grows vegetables or ask a farmer or greengrocer to bring in samples to school.
