Discover where your fruits and vegetables originated from!
Who is the grandparent of cauliflower?
Can you match the grandkids to their grandparents? By doing so, you’ll find out who the ancestors are of our everyday fruit, vegetables, and grains! Every grandchild (green frameworks) has one or two grandparents (yellow frameworks), and grandparents (yellow frameworks) can have one or multiple grandkids (green frameworks).
This game is designed to give a better insight in the origin of crops. Feel free to use the content in your classroom or at home with your kids! You could even print the pictures on magnets so you can play the game on a big board!
All the pictures are available for download! Sent us an e-mail for more information!
