Oregon Harvest for Schools: Mystery Veggie

For this lesson, students will rely on their sense of touch to make and record observations about a mystery vegetable. Once students have either worked as a class or individually to describe their sense of the veggie, have students draw their impression of the veggie and label it with any descriptions needed. Once students have completed the task, provide students the opportunity to guess what the veggie might be and then show them the mystery veggie. Comparisons between what the students wrote and/or drew can then be done to see how well our sense of touch can help us “see” the world.
