Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Fruits Vs. Vegetables - Section 2: Activity


When designing this lesson it is important to be cognoscente of the students experiences with specific fruits. Many of the students today have only experienced seedless grapes and watermelons. I try very hard to find samples of both these fruits with seeds so students can see the original versions which helps makes sorting and classifying much easier.
