Fall Harvest: Lettuce and Radishes Developed by Holly Cheek, GA State University, Dietetic Intern Goal: To help kids understand the definition of local foods and specifically, to learn more about the two crops that will be harvested today: lettuce and radishes. Objectives: The kids will be able to: • Understand what it means for a food to be local • Gain knowledge about the history of lettuce and radishes • Know the nutrients that sweet lettuce and radishes provide. • Identify the parts of the plant that lettuce and radishes represent Time: 20 minutes Guide and Materials: • Guide: Lettuce and Radish fact sheet • Materials: Lettuce, radishes, and trowels Background Information: Today it is more important the ever for kids to understand where their food comes from. Our culture is filled with fast food restaurants and packaged products that leave no clues about the origins of the food they serve/contain. School garden programs are an excellent way for kids to have hands on experience when it comes to learning about local crops. Furthermore, children need to be taught about the health benefits of fresh foods compared to packaged and processed foods Lesson Plan 1. Local foods. What does the term local mean? Also, talk specifically about where lettuce and radishes originated. Are lettuces and radishes local foods to Georgia? (We do not sell much nationally, but can be grown here) Where can you find local foods? Do grocery stores only sell local foods? Have you ever tried different types of lettuce or radishes? What do you like about them? 2. Use the Lettuce and Radish Fact Sheet to explain more specifics about these 2 crops. What part of the plant is lettuce? Radish? Is lettuce good for you? What is one way to judge the amount of nutrients in lettuce? What about radishes? Does anyone know how to cook lettuce or radishes? What happens when you cook them? 3. To reinforce the class (Optional): Send the children home with a recipe that includes either lettuce or radishes. If this is not possible, simply remind the kids to tell their parents what vegetables they learned about in school today and that they are proud that these fresh, tasty vegetables can be grown in Georgia.
