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

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.

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?
