Let's learn more about the properties of fruit! Use this Anatomy of fruit set to help young children observe, and sort the different parts of 10 different types of fruit, as well as hypothesize and record their findings!
Inside this set you will find investigations for the following 10 fruits: Apples, Lemons, Bananas, Pineapples, Pears, Strawberries, Kiwi's, Watermelon, Oranges and Avocados.
Before you start your investigation use the "Do you know" poster to start a discussion about the fruit you will be investigation. Before the dissection children can draw a photo of what they suspect the inside of the fruit will look like.
Use the full color fruit anatomy posters (featuring real fruit photos) to discuss the parts of fruit you'll find,
Use the included fruit anatomy form to sort the parts of each fruit from your investigation. Simply place it inside a page protector or laminate for durability.
Inside this set you will also find reproducible Science investigation recording sheets for each of the included fruits. The recording sheets allow the children to explore the fruit with their different senses. They can record how the skin feels, color the outside/inside, draw the seeds and record if they enjoyed the taste of each fruit you investigate. After they have recorded their findings encourage them to share them with friends and family!
