I let slip that last year at around this time, we made blueberry muffins – as part of our unit on plants. That caused a bit of a stir!
Of course we were quick to make the connection between the blueberries and plants. But, I asked, which, if any, of the other ingredients also come from plants?
Delfine was quick to tell us that wheat seeds come from a plant. And Sebastian clarified this by telling us that the seeds are ground up to make flour.
What about sugar? Well, that’s obviously not from a plant. Sugar, we know, comes from the supermarket. From a machine. From a packet.
And butter caused a bit of confusion too. Butter, you see, almost certainly comes from buttercups…..
Food for thought, I feel!
