Fruit and Vegetable Tasting Day

Each of us had to bring one piece of fruit and one vegetable to school today.

We used our senses to look at, to touch, to smell and to taste each piece.

Before we tasted the food we classified them into different groups (fruit & veg, smooth and rough, light and heavy, colour, size, shape-cylinder or sphere).  We also talked about where each grows, and we named the fruit and veg (and colours) in both english and irish.

We each got a tick sheet which we marked with an X if we didn’t try the fruit or veg, or with a smiley or sad face if we tasted the fruit or veg and liked or didn’t like it.   Any tick sheet with no Xs at the end won a prize.

We really enjoyed the day and we want to thank all our families for helping us bring the 14 different types of fruit and the 10 different vegetables to school today.
