We had to make vegetable monsters for a Halloween competition at school last week, so I took the opportunity to try and teach my youngest child the names of some vegetables and how to recognise the name when written down. We also tried a bit of weighing and measuring.
Can you guess how many conkers weighed as much as a fennel?
We made some signs and matched the vegetables to the correct sign.
Then we made our monster, although I think he’s quite cute.
Have you made a vegetable monster before? We’d love to see it.
How about making a vegetable shop to practice weighing and recognising different vegetables, a bit like our flower shop?
Practice weighing and measuring as you carve a pumpkin.
