Grocery Store Cards
Submitted by Teddy
Cut out pictures of different foods from ads or coupons and paste them on a Index card. Make them look like playing cards by writing the name (and/or food group) on the top and bottom of the picture. You can use these cards in many, many different ways. Some ideas are:
* Go Fish (Using Food Groups)
* Making Picture Grocery List
Let your children see how plants sprout and then form root systems. Wet paper towels and put them in clear plastic cups. Finally sprinkle radish seed on the paper towel until the seeds are clearly visible. Set the cups in the sun and keep the towels moist, you will have growth in no time.
Dampen a sponge and then put grass seed on the top of it. Next pour water over the sponge let your children watch as the grass grows over the next few weeks.
