Healthy tasting day

Today we had a fruit and vegetable tasting day.
Most people brought in one piece of fruit and one vegetable for the class to try.
First of all we sorted the fruits and vegetables.
Then we sorted according to colour, shape and whether each one was rough or smooth.
We counted each kind of fruit and veg and made a data chart of what we had.
We had most olives.  
Next we tried tasting the fruit and veg.
Here are what we tasted:
Vegetables: carrot, leek, parsnip, courgette, eggplant (aubergine), scallions, peppers (red and yellow) and cucumber.
Fruit:  apple, orange, banana, pear, kiwi, grapes, olives, strawberries, coconut and tomato, blueberries and avocado.
We each had a card like the one above.
Teacher gave us a sticker for each thing we tasted and we put an X in the box if we didn't want to taste any food.
Some of the kids in our class tried EVERYTHING!
Well done to them for trying.

Thanks to Great Ormond Street Childrens' Hospital for this link!
And another great video, this time about bullying, from the same source:
