wonderful lesson plan that relates the story to both nutrition and language
arts. Teachers can pick and choose from the various worksheets and activities
to meet the needs of their students. If you would rather not tie it into
nutrition education, there are still various activities students could complete.
There is a science lesson as well where students match the seeds with
clips, Script for the play, and a Vegetable Soup recipe from Grace Lin’s blog.
include: 2 online related to growing a garden, a picture slideshow about
growing a garden, spelling and vocabulary activities, and more.
Vocabulary Activities, Discussion Questions, etc. by Wiki site user kczurek (I wish I had more
information on this user so that I could better site their work!)
are ready to print and use within your own classroom. There are also Smartboard
activities that can be downloaded to use.
Check the back of the book for a recipe for the soup! Or obtain a variety of unique vegetables from the story for children to try!
If you are not able to get such unique vegetables, these would be cute, too!
