Strawberry Craze


When strawberries are in season, we go a little strawberry crazy!

Foods are a great way to learn about geography, cultures, history, literature, science, and math, naturally, especially if you become inspired to find out all you can about them, and do as much as possible with that food item!

For example, did you know that strawberries are not a berry? They are part of the rose family, and unlike fruits that are considered berries such as blueberries, cranberries, and bananas, their 200 'seeds', or achenes, are on the outside of the fruit! When we read about the health benefits of these delicious, red delights, we wanted to learn how to grow our own! Thankfully, we live in a area that allows us plenty of time to grow this vitamin C rich fruit. 

We found out that the leaves of the plant could be used medicinally, so we learned more about that too.

As one thing lead to another, we started to get into a bit of a strawberry craze, and before we knew it, we were doing all kinds of things with strawberries such as using our senses to get to know them better, testing them, and finding out where they grew in the United States and all over the world! Then we started using them in as many different ways as possible!

We made Strawberry Breakfast Sundaes (yum!), strawberry play dough, started growing our own plants and much, much more!

The more we learned, the more questions we had! For example:
