My children are having such a good time with our fruits and vegetables unit study this week! I hope you’re enjoying these posts and I especially hope they help you with some ideas for your own fruits and vegetables unit study.
This weekend, I’ll publish a post listing all of the resources we used and books we read, so make sure you stop back by for that!
Today I’m sharing with you the Vegetable 3-Part Cards that my younger girls are using this week.
Vegetable 3-Part Cards

Just like the fruit 3-part cards, you can use these printables in a variety of ways!
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
♥ Use as a traditional matching, Memory-style game
♥ If your child can read, have him match the word to the vegetable
♥ Sort the cards by beginning sound or beginning letter
♥ Sort the cards by color
♥ Sort the cards by preference – which ones your kiddos like and which ones they don’t!
♥ Sort the cards into two groups: those vegetables they have tried and those they have not
♥ If you have these vegetables at home, have your child match the card to the actual vegetable
♥ Sort by category: tubers, roots, leaves, flower buds, stems, fruits, seeds
♥ Use as spelling words for the week
♥ Draw a vegetable and use in a sentence
♥ Match the vegetables to the pages of the vegetable book you’re reading
One of the spine books for our fruits and vegetables unit study is The Vegetables We Eat by Gail Gibbons.
As I explained in the post with the fruit 3-part cards, my kiddos also use the vegetable cards as a hide and seek game.
They draw a card from the vegetable card stack and find it in the book. Then we read all about the vegetable and how it grows.
My children have loved this very simple activity!
And just a side note for those of us that love Cliff Clavin facts: The correct spelling is Brussels sprouts, with a capital B.
