The Passionfruit Vine. (By Dannielle Bullock)

A small group of children were excited to return to preschool and discover that our passion fruit vine is flowering. A discussion followed where the children and their educator brainstormed different recipes using passionfruit. Some ideas were smoothies, cakes, slices, fruit salad and William O suggested to “just eat them.”

 

The children will continue to care for the passionfruit vine by ensuring it has sufficient water and sunlight. This daily activity demonstrates that the children are becoming responsible for their environment and are therefore connected to and can contribute to their world. (DEEWR, 2009) (Learning Outcome 2.4)
