Where does the food grow?

We were busy working in our garden when a question was asked. Where does the apple grow?

Did it grow in the ground or on a tree? Her answer made me think of how we could play with this.

So today I used the only tree that we have in the room (a palm tree) and tied baskets from it. The baskets were used to put in the food that grows above ground then a basket was placed on the bottom to represent what grows under the ground.

The baskets filled up fast.
