USDA Team Nutrition: Cantaloupe Corner

In this activity guide children learn about cantaloupe through hands-on activities. They experience how a cantaloupe looks, feels, tastes, and smells. Cantaloupe Corner connects the cantaloupes grown on the farm to the fruit in the store or farmers market. The children can’t resist the cantaloupe-tasting activities, from plain wedges to soup to salad. “Growing at Home” materials create review options for the daily Cantaloupe Corner activities. The resources for these lessons can be found in The Basics Book.
