Vermont Harvest of the Month: Kale

Includes two lessons: The Autobiography of Kale (English) and Parts of a Leaf (Science). Have students imagine they are a kale plant and describe their life from seed to plate. This is a great opportunity to discuss the life cycle of a plant, as it lives through the seasons. Then have students draw and label a kale leaf through observation. On the board, you can draw the parts along with the students and discuss the role of each part as you go.
