On Tuesday, we planted the cucumber seeds. In order to reinforce what we learned, we explored with the cucumber using our 5 senses on Wednesday afternoon. Each child had the opportunity to touch, smell, hear, see, and taste the cucumber. They answered questions like, “What do you see? How does it feel? Does it taste bitter, sour, or sweet? Does it have a smell? What do you hear when you eat the cucumber?”
Some of their responses were, “It feels cold! It feels rough on the outside. It tastes delicious! We hear a crunchy sound!”
We are so glad we got to explore the cucumber with you all:) We would LOVE for you and your family to explore different kinds of vegetables at home using the 5 senses.
