V-Vegetable Unit is great for us for our kids really need some "push" in eating vegetables! (though I recently found the magic Spinach...it's versatile and doesn't have a strong taste, so I can put in many dishes and the kids will gladly eat it).
Here is our plan:
*Teach about the food pyramid, emphasizing on Vegetables (they are GREAT in grains, fruits and dairy). Wonderful resources, posters, games, worksheets here
* from the site I printed off a "fruit and vegetable diary" and plan to do a charting at the end of the unit
*Vegetable printing (using okra, potato, carrots or other veg)
*We happen to have nice vegetable posters and reusable stickers that I put on the windows
*Vv tracing for the preschooler
*GREAT WONDERFUL Vegetable/garden videos on Sesame Street. Games too!
*Make Vegetable Soup

You make grass grow for the cattle
and plants for people to take care of.
That's how they get food from the earth
