Indentifying nutritional foods begins with identifying the basic fruits and vegetables.
In this simple activity the children selected their favorites and put them into the shopping cart, as we discussed the name of the fruit or vegetable and it's attributes. Does it grow on a tree or does it grow in the ground? What colour / shape is it? etc.
To create this activity I simply searched the internet for images - printed them out - then lamintated them for durability. There is a slit cut into the image of the cart where the fruits and veggies go into an envelope taped to the back.
The children love to play this alone - in a group or with a friend.
