When students are learning about where fruits and vegetables grow it is important to discuss how not all fruits and vegetables grow the same way!
Children should be made aware of how vegetables might not grow on a plant the same ways fruits do, with some, in fact, growing underground as a root vegetable. Also, they should learn how many vegetables can be the stems or even the flowers of a plant. By using these worksheets with comic images that show fruits and vegetables growing incorrectly, students can correct the errors and explore how different foods grow different ways on plants.
