These are the recording sheets and word bank that I created for our investigation into whether produce is either a fruit (contains seeds) or a vegetable (the roots, stem, leaves, or flower). Students document the produce's name, draw its image, and record whether it has seeds (a fruit) or does not have seeds (a vegetable). Students use the word bank to identify the fruit/vegetable, and spell it correctly.
I modeled the investigation with a carrot, and we investigated another produce item together as a whole class, and then students worked with their partner to investigate at least 4 other produce items of their choosing.
This investigation extended our study of fruits. You can find my powerpoint on Fruits Have Seeds for free on TpT! You can also find my powerpoint on how "We Eat All Different Plant Parts" discussing how for some plants we eat their fruits, and for others we eat their seeds, stems, leaves, flowers, or roots.
