Vermont’s Harvest of the Month: Cabbage

These harvest lessons are a fun way for students to explore, taste, and learn about cabbage. Students will learn about the origins, nutritional value, life cycle, adaptations, inherited traits, and predator/prey relations of cabbage. Also, students will learn how different cultures prepare cabbage with a taste test of cabbage dishes from different cultures. Students will measure the weight, mass, volume, density, and circumference of cabbages. They will learn about other members of the cabbage family with the Brassica Family Matching Game.
