Learning where fruits grow

Here is a fun exercise that will help your students learn about fruit and geography.

Supplies: (pick two fruits from each growing region)
1 pineapple
1 banana
1 apple
1 peach or pear
1 orange (don't get a naval orange, as it is seedless)
1 lemon
1 world map
1 globe
1 United States map
fruit cutouts
First introduce the students to the subject by talking about what fruits are, and the difference between fruits and vegetables. Using real fruits, cut each one open to show the seeds, or point out where the seeds would be if the fruit is a seedless variety. Discuss with your students about each fruit and what type of climate it needs to grow. Using removable stickum, attach the fruit cutouts on this page to the country or state on a map where they might be grown.
