This week in Social Studies our fruit from the Third World is a very spectacular and unusual one. A picture of it can be seen above. Do you know what it is called?
Here we take a closer look inside. Are you any clearer about what it might be?
A few clues to help you…
- The fruit grows in Mexico and Central and South America
- Also grows in Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Malaysia
- they have large white fragrant flowers of the typical cactusflower shape
- they have a creamy pulp and a delicate aroma
Still not sure? Here is the flower.
Tune in after Tuesday’s Social Studies lesson to find out more…
This morning in Social Studies we got a chance to explore the ins and outs of the…Dragon Fruit!
The Dragon Fruit we looked at came from Paraguay (like our pineapple last week) but they also grow in all of the countries/regions named above.
We decided that it looked amazing, tasted a bit like a bland version of a kiwi fruit and was easy to prepare.
If you get the chance it is definitely worth having your own Dragon Fruit tasting session – our class gave it 100% thumbs up when we asked for feedback! 😉
