Finding Patterns in Fruits and Vegetables
Materials: Fruits or vegetables, knives appropriate for age level
Objective: Students will develop a deeper, hands-on understanding of finding patterns in nature.
Directions: Bring fruits that show patterns of different numbers.
- Students slice the fruits in half and observe the cross-section on the fruit or veg.
- Students draw a “scientific drawing” of the slice.
- Students draw a dot on each section of seed pattern of the fruit. Students then connect the dots, revealing a shape in the fruit.
