Discuss: What would you eat if you were a herbivore?

Explore: Invite children to explore the ingredients and taste a little bit of each. Which ingredients would an herbivore dinosaur eat?

Create:

  • Invite the children to wash hands and work surfaces.
  • Follow the directions on the Recipe Card to create a tree snack.
  • Pretend to be a brontosaurus or other herbivore and try to eat the snack without using their hands.

Assess: Did the child identify the ingredients that were vegetables/fruits? Did he or she serve himself the portions to create the snack?

Reflect: How can you use snack time to learn about the family cultures and traditions of your children?
