Fruit Salad

Today we made a fresh fruit salad with mint. It was delicious. We chopped different fruits up and added freshly chopped mint. As we cut up the fruits we talked about how they were the same but different. We also talked about why fruit is good for us. The fruit salad was delicious. The mint was scrumptious!

Which fruits would you add to a fresh fruit salad?

Then we talked about how, to care for the worm, we needed to put it in soil. After carefully placing the worm in the garden we watched it slowly ‘tunnel’ it’s way into the soil.
