Enjoy learning about vegetables through these Vegetable Coloring Pages from The Teaching Aunt.
We first learn about nutrition at home but there’s also room for it in the preschool curriculum.
As a teacher, I always find it exciting when the theme we’re learning is about food.
Do you know why?
Because that means there’s going to be eating involved!
Now some children may be finicky at eating vegetables. And to some extreme, the only vegetable in their diet is french fries.
If this is the case, it is all the more important to teach about vegetables in a fun way.
Here is a list of my tried and tested techniques:
- Use cute and colorful vegetable flashcards as teaching materials and class decor.
- Bring actual vegetables to school. Take the time to discuss a specific vegetable’s color, texture, smell, and taste. Let your students explore and investigate.
- Watch a cartoon about vegetables; or with vegetable characters. I highly recommend VeggieTales! Not only will your students be entertained, but they’ll also learn valuable lessons.
- Work on vegetable-themed worksheets that target specific learning objectives.
- Math worksheets
- Tracing worksheets
- Sounds and letters worksheets
- Create art and craft or work on coloring pages.
- Plant vegetable seeds and watch them grow. This one takes time but the experience is priceless.
- Visit a vegetable farm. Ask the farmer questions about vegetables and I hope you’ll get to experience harvesting, too.
- Throw a vegetable party! I told you there’s going to be eating involved.
As mentioned in one of the tips above, working on coloring pages is a fun way to learn about vegetables.
