We're back this week with some more free educational activities parents can do at home! This week we are focusing on fruit.
1. Grades 6-8 English Reading and Writing
Have your kids read this blog on oranges.
Then, have your kids write a few paragraphs summarizing what they learned about oranges.
2. K-12 Science
Watch the video "How Does It Grow? Oranges".
Before you watch the video – ask kids, “How do you think oranges grow?” “How do you think they are harvested?” Compare their answers after you watch the video.
3. Grades 4-6 Reading, Writing and Science
Read the Feeding Minds Press' printable book, "Berry Good Project".
Rather watch a video of someone else reading? Check out this video of Ronda Hamm, Global Academic Relations Manager for Corteva Agriscience.
Have your kids answer the following questions:
- What is integrated pest management? Why is it useful?
- What is one GOOD bug when it comes to growing strawberries?
