Teaching Tips

  • Go to the grocery store to pick out some carrots. Will you choose the long skinny ones with the green tops? Or the baby ones in a bag?
  • Talk with your child about the differences they see in the carrots available and use the sign.
  • Grow fun learning for kids in the kitchen! Did you know you can grow a new carrot from an old carrot top? Take a small dish and line with cotton balls. Place a cut carrot top over them and make sure to keep the cotton balls moist with water at all times. In a couple of days a new sprout will begin. You can track the growth of your new carrot and practice the sign everyday.
