This is a great little worksheet to do with the story The Ugly Vegetables by Grace Lin!
Bring in several unusual vegetables for your students to observe. (Parsnips, rhubarb, beets, and sweet potatoes work well.)
Have your students draw a small picture of the vegetable they choose and then write words to tell what it looks like, smells like, and feels like.
Students then get to share their opinion...is their vegetable ugly or not?!
This activity generates great conversation!
